Hauptziel der vorliegenden Arbeit ist es, ein einfaches und praxisorientiertes iteratives Verfahren zu entwickeln, mit welchem regelungsorientierte Modelle für nichtlineare Systeme aus Messdaten identifiziert werden können. Dazu werden Takagi-Sugeno-Fuzzy-Modelle mit lokal linearen/affinen Modellen verwendet. Ein besonderes Augenmerk liegt auf dem sogenannten Driftterm, der bei der Linearisierung eines Modells außerhalb einer Ruhelage auftritt. Dieser wird häufig beim Reglerentwurf aus Takagi-Sugeno-Modellen nicht berücksichtigt. Es wird daher ein einfaches approximatives Verfahren zur Kompensation dieses Terms vorgeschlagen und eine vollständige Methode zum Entwurf eines Fuzzy-Takagi-Sugeno-Reglers mit Driftkompensation eingeführt. Des weiteren wird ein iteratives Identifikationsschema vorgestellt, mit welchem Modelle zur Reglerauslegung im geschlossenen Regelkreis identifiziert werden.

In drei Fallstudien werden unterschiedliche Effekte bei Verwendung der vorgestellten Methoden beleuchtet. Die einzelnen Fallstudien gehen dabei auf die Aspekte Stabilisierbarkeit bei Vernachlässigung/Berücksichtigung des Driftterms, die Modelländerung über die Iterationen sowie Anwendbarkeit auf reale Systeme unter Verwendung eines modifizierten Zustandsbeobachters ein. Das Ergebnis dieser Studien ist, dass sich bei Verwendung der vorgestellten Methoden die Regelgüte verbessern lässt, wenn ein Regler aus Messdaten erzeugt wird, welche im geschlossenen Regelkreis gewonnen wurden.

Building on Gene Hosetter's lucid and highly-praised writing style, almost a third of the material in this Second Edition has been added since the lsat edition, bringing Dr. Hosetetter's classic text in to the present as a state-of-the-art, completely up-to-date, design-oriented digital control systems text. It begins with an overview of classical digital system control design, and develops the principles of regulation, tracking, Kalman filtering, and stochastic control. The stronger emphasis on design also satisfies ABET recommendations for Electrical Engineering curricula. The approach favors applied relevance over the abstract, while still exploring new ideas. Design examples are given throughout each chapter, with at least one major practical problem explained and solved.

From early Jewish-Christian texts such as the Didache, which present well-defined catechetical programs, to contemporary authors such as Dallas Willard, who offer in-depth insights into the transformations of one's heart and soul, systematic texts on spiritual formation in the Western Christian tradition abound. These texts can offer ministers, researchers, and laypersons much clarity and guidance for their craft. However, the spiritual formation systems that we use are also always contextually influenced; such contextual factors may make them difficult to adapt to one's local work. Rather than turning to only a single text or community, then, it can be helpful for practitioners and theorists to look to a broader set of systematic presentations of spiritual formation. By turning to a group of specific individuals and communities in each era of Western Christian history, this book will help those working in this field to better understand how personal spiritual formation has been conceptualized and embodied. Such an exploration will help us not only to compile a more complete history of spiritual formation at the level of the individual but also to glean a better understanding of personal transformation so that we might engage this craft in more informed and systematic ways.

Run-to-run (R2R) control is cutting-edge technology that allows modification of a product recipe between machine "runs," thereby minimizing process drift, shift, and variability-and with them, costs. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated in a variety of processes, such as vapor phase epitaxy, lithography, and chemical mechanical planarization. The only barrier to the semiconductor industry's widespread adoption of this highly effective process control is a lack of understanding of the technology. Run to Run Control in Semiconductor Manufacturing overcomes that barrier by offering in-depth analyses of R2R control.

An extensive revision of the author's highly successful text, this third edition of Linear System Theory and Design has been made more accessible to students from all related backgrounds. After introducing the fundamental properties of linear systems, the text discusses design using state equations and transfer functions. In state-space design, Lyapunov equations are used extensively to design state feedback and state estimators. In the discussion of transfer-function design, pole placement, model matching, and their applications in tracking and disturbance rejection are covered. Both one-and two-degree-of-freedom configurations are used. All designs can be accomplished by solving sets of linear algebraic equations. The two main objectives of the text are to: � use simple and efficient methods to develop results and design procedures � enable students to employ the results to carry out design All results in this new edition are developed for numerical computation and illustrated using MATLAB, with an emphasis on the ideas behind the computation and interpretation of results. This book develops all theorems and results in a logical way so that readers can gain an intuitive understanding of the theorems. This revised edition begins with the time-invariant case and extends through the time-varying case. It also starts with single-input single-output design and extends to multi-input multi-output design. Striking a balance between theory and applications, Linear System Theory and Design, 3/e, is ideal for use in advanced undergraduate/first-year graduate courses in linear systems and multivariable system design in electrical, mechanical, chemical, and aeronautical engineering departments. It assumes a working knowledge of linear algebra and the Laplace transform and an elementary knowledge of differential equations.

Systems and Control presents modelling, analysis, and control of dynamical systems. It acquaints students with the basics of dynamical system theory and also equips them with the tools necessary for control system design. It emphasizes design and demonstrates how dynamical system theory fits into practical applications. Classical methods and the techniques of post-modern control engineering are covered in a unified fashion, showing how the current tools of a control engineer supplement more classical tools.Broad in scope, Systems and Control shows the multidisciplinary role of dynamics and control. It presents neural networks, fuzzy systems, and genetic algorithms and provides a self-contained introduction to chaotic systems. The text employs Lyapunov's stability theory as a unifying medium for different types of dynamical systems, using it--with its variants --to analyze dynamical system models. Specifically, optimal, fuzzy, sliding mode, and chaotic controllers are all constructed with the aid of the Lyapunov method and its extensions. In addition, a class of neural networks is also analyzed using Lyapunov's method.Ideal for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses in systems and control, this text can also be used for introductory courses in non-linear systems and modern automatic control.Contents:Each chapter ends with Notes and Exercises.Preface1.
