Mark French, Csaba Szepesvári, Performance of Nonlinear Approximate Adaptive Controllers
ISBN: 0471498092 | edition 2003 | PDF | 400 pages | 18 mb
In recent years there has been a wide interest in non-linear adaptive control using approximate models, either for tracking or regulation, and usually under the banner of neural network based control. The authors present a unique critical evaluation of the approximate model philosophy and its setting, rigorously comparing the performance of such controls against competing designs. Analysing a very topical aspect of contemporary research and control practice this book highlights the situations in which approximate model based designs are most appropriate and indicates scenarios in which other designs could be used more productively.
