Analysis and Control of Nonlinear Process Systems – K.M. Hangos, J. Bokor, G. Szederkényi – 1st Edition


Almost all systems are nonlinear in nature. Nonlinear control is traditionally an area of interest in process systems engineering which is of great practical importance.

These facts notwithstanding; many engineers have difficulty with the paradigms and results of modern nonlinear control theory because they lack the background usually associated with such methods or because of their computational difficulty and small-scale applicability in the general case. Analysis and Control of Nonlinear Systems overcomes these barriers.

• The necessary preliminaries for readers from a engineering background.

• Constant reference to the widely-known finite-dimensional linear time-invariant continuous case as a basis for extension to the nonlinear situation.

• The most promising theories and analytical methods for nonlinear control laid out clearly and straightforwardly with exercises to reaffirm the techniques as they are taught.

• Emphasis on the importance of knowledge and first-principles-based models in obtaining feasible and effective solutions in particular circumstances from general cases.

• Illustration of with simple examples and case studies.

Analysis and Control of Nonlinear Systems will interest graduate process engineers wishing to study advanced control methods either with a view to further research or application in industry as well as to academics seeking to move process control courses into more complicated but up-to-date territory.

It will also be a great assistance to those in their senior undergraduate years who will form the next generation of industrial process engineers and need unfussy access to the most modern nonlinear control ideas.
