Proceedings Of Workshop On Advances In Control And Its Applications

The papers in this volume were all delivered at a wokshop held to celebrate the 60th birthday of Professor Petar V Kokotovich. All the papers were delivered by former students of Professor Kokotovich and cover a wide variety of topics in control and its applications. Topics covered include: using sensitivity methods to design an adaptive controller for automotive speed control, recent advances in adaptive nonlinear control, hardware implementation schemes for fuzzy control systems, algorithms for modelling and an alysis of a hybrid system, the role of manifolds in system reduction and feedback designs which exploit time-scale separation, applying sampled-data techniques to nonlinear singularly perturbed systems, a new nonlinear model reduction formulation for large power systems based on slow coherency and aggregation ideas.
