Part of the Intelligent Systems, Control and Automation: Science and Engineering book series (ISCA, volume 85)


In this chapter a background on multiobjective optimization and a review on multiobjective optimization design procedures within the context of control systems and the controller tuning problem are provided. Focus is given on multiobjective problems where an analysis of the Pareto front is required, in order to select the most preferable design alternative for the control problem at hand.
