Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The focus here is on recent advances in feedback control designs for various types of electric motors, with a slight emphasis on stepper motors. For this purpose, the authors explore modeling of these devices to the extent needed to provide a high-performance controller, but at the same time amenable to model-based nonlinear designs. The control designs concentrate mainly on recent robust adaptive nonlinear controllers to attain high performance. It seeks to show that the adaptive robust nonlinear controller on its own archives a reasonably good performance without requiring exact knowledge of motor parameters."
