Control and Dynamic Systems: Advances in Theory and Applications, Volume 50: Robust Control System Techniques and Applications, Part 1 of 2 is a two-volume sequence devoted to the issues and application of robust control systems techniques. This volume is composed of 10 chapters and begins with a presentation of the important techniques for dealing with conflicting design objectives in control systems. The subsequent chapters describe the robustness techniques of systems using differential-difference equations; the design of a wide class of robust nonlinear systems, the techniques for dealing with the problems resulting from the use of observers in robust systems design, and the effective techniques for the robust control on non-linear time varying of tracking control systems with uncertainties. These topics are followed by discussions of the effective techniques for the robust control on non-linear time varying of tracking control systems with uncertainties and for incorporating adaptive control techniques into a (non-adaptive) robust control design. Other chapters present techniques for achieving exponential and robust stability for a rather general class of nonlinear systems, techniques in modeling uncertain dynamics for robust control systems design, and techniques for the optimal synthesis of these systems. The last chapters provide a generalized eigenproblem solution for both singular and nonsingular system cases. These chapters also look into the stability robustness design for discrete-time systems. This book will be of value to process and systems engineers, designers, and researchers.

An essential guide to the stability and control of power systems integrating large-scale renewable energy sources The rapid development of smart grids and the integration of large scale renewable energy have added daunting new layers of complexity to the long-standing problem of power system stability control. This book offers a systematic stochastic analysis of these nonlinear problems and provides comprehensive countermeasures to improve power system performance and control with large-scale, hybrid power systems. Power system stability analysis and control is by no means a new topic. But the integration of large scale renewable energy sources has added many new challenges which must be addressed, especially in the areas of time variance, time delay, and uncertainties. Robust, adaptive control strategies and countermeasures are the key to avoiding inadequate, excessive, or lost loads within hybrid power systems. Written by an internationally recognized innovator in the field this book describes the latest theory and methods for handling power system angle stability within power networks. Dr. Jing Ma analyzes and provides control strategies for large scale power systems and outlines state-of-the-art solutions to the entire range of challenges facing today’s power systems engineers. Features nonlinear, stochastic analysis of power system stability and control Offers proven countermeasures to optimizing power system performance Focuses on nonlinear time-variance, long time-delays, high uncertainties and comprehensive countermeasures Emphasizes methods for analyzing and addressing time variance and delay when integrating large-scale renewable energy Includes rigorous algorithms and simulations for the design of analysis and control modeling Power System Wide-area Stability Analysis and Control is must-reading for researchers studying power system stability analysis and control, engineers working on power system dynamics and stability, and graduate students in electrical engineering interested in the burgeoning field of smart, wide-area power systems.
