Nonlinear Control

  1. Nov 21, 2007 #1
    Hi all

    I am looking for different nonlinear control methods based on lyapunov theory.
    Indeed I should use a method which give the "region of attraction" explicitly such as CLF and Bakhstepping methods.

    Can enyone help me and introduce me some otehr methods?

    Many thanks in advance.

    I don't know much about nonlinear control theory, but I have heard that the book by Vidyasagar (same person who wrote the Robotics book) is a must read for all control engineers for non linear control.

    Read : Slotine J.J.E., Li, W., "Applied nonlinear control", Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice-Hall, 1991.

    it is a good book for starters. Not too mathematical. It will introduce you to the concepts of nonlinear controls.
