“Nonlinear Decoupling in Process Control”

Authors: Jens G. Balchen,
Affiliation: NTNU, Department of Engineering Cybernetics
Reference: 1991, Vol 12, No 2, pp. 81-94.

Keywords: Nonlinearity, decoupling, inverse dynamics, process control

Abstract: The principle of nonlinear decoupling as a general approach to the control of nonlinear processes is reviewed. A novel technique is introduced for resolving the inverse problem in case the nonlinear process function does not have a closed-form inverse. The paper also indicates the relationships between nonlinear decoupling, ´cascade control´ and ´sliding mode control´.
