The aim of this book is to provide state-of-the-art information on various aspects of human-machine interaction and human-centred issues encountered in the control room setting. As industrial processes have become more automated, there is increasing concern about the performance of the people who control these systems. Human error is increasingly cited as the cause of accidents across many sectors of industry. This book is written primarily by engineers, for engineers involved with human factor issues. Based on a successful multidisciplinary conference on the subject, and illustrated with usef

Receding Horizon Control introduces the essentials of a successful feedback strategy that has emerged in many industrial fields: the process industries in particular. Receding horizon control (RHC) has a number of advantages over other types of control: easier computation than steady-state optimal control; greater adaptability to parametric changes than infinite horizon control; better tracking than PID and good constraint handling among others. The text builds understanding starting with optimal controls for simple linear systems and working through constrained systems to nonlinear cases.

Robust Control for Uncertain Networked Control Systems with Random Delays addresses the problem of analysis and design of networked control systems when the communication delays are varying in a random fashion. The random nature of the time delays is typical for commercially used networks, such as a DeviceNet (which is a controller area network) and Ethernet network. The main technique used in this book is based on the Lyapunov-Razumikhin method, which results in delay-dependent controllers. The existence of such controllers and fault estimators are given in terms of the solvability of biline

H-infinity control originated from an effort to codify classical control methods, where one shapes frequency response functions to meet certain objectives. H-infinity control underwent tremendous development in the 1980s and made considerable strides toward systematizing classical control. This book addresses the next major issue of how this extends to nonlinear systems. At the core of nonlinear control theory lie two partial differential equations (PDEs). One is a first-order evolution equation called the information state equation, which constitutes the dynamics of the controller. One can

Following his book on the origin of control engineering (1800-1930 (see separate entry), the author now traces development through the critical period 1930-1955, widely identified as the period of ’classical’ control theory. In the 1930s basic automatic control devices were developed and used in process industries, as were servos for the control of aircraft and ships and amplifiers for the telephone system and early computers etc. During the war many disparate ideas were brought together for the development of aircraft tracking and response systems -- leading to classical control t
