Design Principles of Single-Input Single-Output Nonlinear Control Systems
From this chapter, we can find a notable characteristic of this book, i.e. the book expatiates upon combining the nonlinear control principle with the design method. As viewed from engineering practice, the ultimate purpose of a new control theory’s establishment and development is to design and manufacture the more novel and better types of controllers. The classical control theory has this purpose, so does the linear optimal control theory. The new system of nonlinear control theory, which we are presenting to the reader, will not depart this practical purpose. From another point of view, a control theory can only embody its value when the control systems designed following the theory are applied to the engineering practice and put into full play; At the same time, only by the extensive application of a theory, we will be able to find out its weak points and to improve and develop the theory. The outstanding feature of practicality of the control theory distinguishes itself from some of other basic theoretical branches (such as pure mathematics, astronomy, etc.).
