Control technology has played an essential role in a wide range of control systems, from the simple household appliance to high-performance industrial machines. It seeks to understand physical systems by using mathematical modelling methods; develop optimal control algorithms to enable the systems to behave in the desired manner; and implement the controllers in the physical systems.
To meet the requirements of ever-increasing product quality and productivity, innovative and effective control technologies are urgently needed. The goal of this special issue is to bring together recent research outcomes in the field of system identification, control theory and control applications.
We solicit papers that address the development of system identification, advanced control techniques ranging from linear robust control to nonlinear intelligent control methods, and control applications for a variety of industrial systems.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Modal analysis and system identification
- Robust and nonlinear control
- Intelligent control methods
- Advanced control techniques for robotic and mechatronic systems
- Control of power electronics
- Network control technologies
