This book is devoted to control of finite and infinite dimensional processes with continuous-time and discrete time control, focusing on suppression problems and new methods of adaptation applicable for systems with sliding motions only. Special mathematical methods are needed for all the listed control tasks. These methods are addressed in the initial chapters, with coverage of the definition of the multidimensional sliding modes, the derivation of the differential equations of those motions, and the existence conditions. Subsequent chapters discusses various areas of further research. The book reflects the consensus view of the authors regarding the current status of SMC theory. It is addressed to a broad spectrum of engineers and theoreticians working in diverse areas of control theory and applications. It is well suited for use in graduate and postgraduate courses in such university programs as Electrical Engineering, Control of Nonlinear Systems, and Mechanical Engineering.
graduated from Moscow Power Institute (Dipl. Eng.) and received PhD and Doctor of Science degrees from the Institute of Control Sciences (Moscow, Russia). He worked at the Institute of Control Sciences from 1960 to 1994, and in 1973 was appointed as Head of the Discontinuous Control Systems Laboratory. Currently he is a professor at Ohio State University. Professor Utkin is one of the originators of the concepts of variable structure systems and sliding mode control. His application interests are control of power converters and electric drives, robotics, and automotive control. He is the author or co-author of five books and 350 papers.
Alexander Poznyak graduated from Moscow Physical Technical Institute (MPhTI) in 1970. He earned PhD and Doctor of Science degrees from the Institute of Control Sciences of the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1978 and 1989, respectively. From 1973 to 1993 he served first as a researcher and then as leading researcher at this institute, before accepting a post as full professor (3-F) at the Center for Research and Advanced Studies of the National Polytechnic Institute (CINVESTAV-IPN) in Mexico, where for 8 years he was head of the Automatic Control Department. He has been the supervisor for 43 PhD theses. He has published more than 240 papers in di?erent international journals and 14 books. His areas of interest are robust nonlinear deterministic and stochastic control, identi?cation theory, Markov processes, and game theory with economics applications.
