Backstepping Control of Nonlinear Dynamical Systems addresses both the fundamentals of backstepping control and advances in the field. The latest techniques explored include 'active backstepping control', 'adaptive backstepping control', 'fuzzy backstepping control' and 'adaptive fuzzy backstepping control'. The reference book provides numerous simulations using MATLAB and circuit design. These illustrate the main results of theory and applications of backstepping control of nonlinear control systems. Backstepping control encompasses varied aspects of mechanical engineering and has many different applications within the field. For example, the book covers aspects related to robot manipulators, aircraft flight control systems, power systems, mechanical systems, biological systems and chaotic systems.
This multifaceted view of subject areas means that this useful reference resource will be ideal for a large cross section of the mechanical engineering community.
