Advanced Control Design

  • Rush D. RobinettIII
  • David G. Wilson
Part of the Understanding Complex Systems book series (UCS)


In this chapter, HSSPFC is utilized to design advanced control laws for distributed parameter systems (PDE’s), fractional calculus control, optimal power flow control, robust tracking control, and adaptive tracking control.
