Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Most technologies and processes, through their interactions, laws, and dynamics, present a nonlinear behavior. The nonlinearities have a stronger impact with the increase in the system’s complexity and dynamics. In these circumstances, the role of nonlinear control in industrial processes becomes more and more crucial.

The abstract representation through nonlinear system modeling offers an important field of research based on the support provided by mathematics, modern systems theory, as well as the development of digital systems and their joint computational assets. These essential tools operate with data, hardware, and software resources, in order to find practical solutions in different applications and to contribute to the development of innovative management strategies for industrial systems and processes.

This Special Issue on “Control of Nonlinear Systems and Industrial Processes”, part of the Electronics MDPI Journal, offers a framework for the presentation of scientific research that brings interesting and relevant contributions in the field of nonlinear control systems and control of industrial processes.

At the same time, the journal provides opportunities for the authors, researchers, and specialists, to offer and to promote their recent developments and relevant results in nonlinear control theory and process control design, applied to different domains with technical and industrial interest, for example, energy, transport, automotive, chemistry and petrochemistry, aerospace, biotechnology, telecommunications, etc.

The journal invites original submissions addressing subjects regarding system stability, control robustness, high computational performance and design for nonlinear systems, issues that arise in process exploitation, aiming at control and management of real-time practical applications, by means of advanced control methods, artificial intelligence or machine learning resources.

A novel technique for estimating the asymptotic stability region of nonlinear autonomous polynomial systems is established. The key idea consists of examining the optimal Lyapunov function (LF) level set that is fully included in a region satisfying the negative definiteness of its time derivative. The minor bound of the biggest achievable region, denoted as Largest Estimation Domain of Attraction (LEDA), can be calculated through a Generalised Eigenvalue Problem (GEVP) as a quasi-convex Linear Inequality Matrix (LMI) optimising approach. An iterative procedure is developed to attain the optimal volume or attraction region. Furthermore, a Chaotic Particular Swarm Optimisation (CPSO) efficient technique is suggested to compute the LF coefficients. The implementation of the established scheme was performed using the Matlab software environment. The synthesised methodology is evaluated throughout several benchmark examples and assessed with other results of peer technique in the literature. Full article
