Robust Control with Engineering Applications

Call for Papers

Robust control is an important branch of control theory that explicitly deals with uncertainty in its approach to controller design. Over the past several decades, there has been an increasing interest in robust control. On one hand, uncertain parameters or disturbances exist inherently in the aeronautics and astronautics, advanced manufacturing, and other complex engineering systems. On the other hand, uncertain parameters or disturbances seriously affect the stability, accuracy, and reliability of underlying control systems. Therefore, robust control has become a challenging problem in international control field.

The purpose of this special issue is to provide an opportunity for scientists, engineers, and practitioners to propose their latest theoretical and technological achievements in robust control. All the submissions are expected to have original ideas and new approaches. Papers presenting newly emerging fields are especially welcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • H control
  • H2 control
  • Guaranteed cost control
  • Adaptive control
  • Variable structure control
  • Antidisturbance control
  • Fault-tolerant control

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal’s Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/mpe/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/mpe/rcea/ according to the following timetable:
