Adaptive Reliable Control for Nonlinear Time-Delay Sys- tems

Over the last three decades, considerable attention has been paid to analysis and synthesis of time-delay systems [12, 51, 69, 89, 92, 93, 103, 116, 147]. The increasing interest about this topic can be understood by the fact that time delays appear as an important source of instability or performance degradation in a great number of important engineering problems involving material, information or energy transportation [23, 33, 34, 56, 57, 98, 104, 130, 135, 137, 144, 158, 159, 163]. In Chapter 9, the adaptive reliable tracking controller design for linear time-invariant systems is investigated. It should be noted that the proposed method in Chapter 9 is not suitable for the dynamic systems with time-delay.
