Special issue information:

In real world, many control systems can be modeled by dynamical equations. With the increasing requirement for high levels of system performance, it needs to design advanced controllers to improve system performance and/or advanced observers to estimate system state variables or parameters to well monitor system and facilitate high level design. However, practical systems may involve various nonlinearities, uncertainties, time delay, strong interconnections, complex networks, and faults etc. In order to make the controlled systems have higher performance, it is necessary to consider complex systems under complex work surroundings for which novel techniques and skills should be developed.


Topics of primary interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Control of networked or interconnected systems
  • Variable structure control
  • Time delay systems
  • Robust observer design and parameters identification
  • Fault detection and fault tolerant control
  • Intelligent systems
  • Cyber-physical control systems
  • Data driven control
  • Applications of advanced analysis and design
