Fractional control techniques provide an effective way to control dynamic behaviours, using fractional differential equations. This can include the control of fractional plants, the control of a plant using a fractional controller, or the control of a plant so that the controlled system will have a fractional behaviour to achieve a performance that would otherwise be hard to come by.
An Introduction to Fractional Control outlines the theory, techniques and applications of fractional control. The theoretical background covers fractional calculus with real, complex and variable orders, fractional transfer functions, fractional identification and pseudo-state-space representations, while the control systems explored include:
Each chapter contains solved examples, where the subject addressed is either expanded or applied to concrete cases, and references for further reading. Common definitions and proofs are included, along with a bibliography, and a discussion of how MATLAB can be used to assist in the design and implementation of fractional control.
“The book is written by two prominent researchers in the field, and I would (and will) recommend the book to any young researcher interested in the field of applied “fractional" calculus, and in particular, anyone interested in the “fractional" perspective on systems theory.”
