Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 16)


The ability to perform well during transient operation will be an unavoidable requirement in future control systems where one pursues higher control performance and operational flexibility closer to the fundamental limitations of the physical system.
