Variable-Structure Systems and Sliding-Mode Control: From Theory to Practice
The book covers the latest theoretical results and sophisticated applications in the field of variable-structure systems and sliding-mode control.
This book is divided into four parts. Part I discusses new higher-order sliding-mode algorithms, including new homogeneous controllers and differentiators. Part II then explores properties of continuous sliding-mode algorithms, such as saturated feedback control, reaching time, and orbital stability. Part III is focused on the usage of variable-structure systems (VSS) controllers for solving other control problems, for example unmatched disturbances. Finally, Part IV discusses applications of VSS; these include applications within power electronics and vehicle platooning.
Variable-structure Systems and Sliding-Mode Control will be of interest to academic researchers, students and practising engineers.
