The book covers the latest theoretical results and sophisticated applications in the field of variable-structure systems and sliding-mode control.

This book is divided into four parts. Part I discusses new higher-order sliding-mode algorithms, including new homogeneous controllers and differentiators. Part II then explores properties of continuous sliding-mode algorithms, such as saturated feedback control, reaching time, and orbital stability. Part III is focused on the usage of variable-structure systems (VSS) controllers for solving other control problems, for example unmatched disturbances. Finally, Part IV discusses applications of VSS; these include applications within power electronics and vehicle platooning.

Variable-structure Systems and Sliding-Mode Control will be of interest to academic researchers, students and practising engineers.

About the Author

Martin Steinberger received his master in electrical engineering and his PhD in technical sciences from Graz University of Technology, Graz, Austria, in 2005 and 2011, respectively. During his time as a PostDoc at Klagenfurt University, Austria, he participated in several industry projects mainly in the field of automotive control. He has been assistant professor at the Institute of Automation and Control since 2016, Graz University of Technology. His research is mainly focused on sliding-mode control and networked control. He was program chair of the 15th International Workshop on Variable-structure Systems (VSS2018) and main organizer of summer schools on sliding-mode control as well as on complex networks and control systems in Graz. Martin Horn received his PhD in electrical engineering in 1998 and his habilitation in "system dynamics and control" in 2003. From 2003 to 2008, he was associate professor at the Institute of Automation and Control at Graz University of Technology. In 2008, he was appointed as a full professor of Control and Measurement Systems at the Faculty of Technical Sciences of Klagenfurt University. Since 2014, he has been head of the Institute of Automation and Control at Graz University of Technology. Martin's main research areas are currently in robust and networked control theory. He participates in several international research projects. He is head of a newly founded research lab focusing on application-oriented basic research in the field of Model Based Control of Complex Testbed Systems. He is reviewer for several important journals, such as International Journal of Control, International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control, IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics or Control Engineering Practice. Martin is author and co-author of numerous journal and conference papers.Leonid M. Fridman received his M.S. degree in mathematics from Kuibyshev (Samara) State University in 1976, a Ph.D. degree in applied mathematics from the Institute of Control Science, Moscow in 1988, and a Dr. Sc. degree in control science from Moscow State University of Mathematics and Electronics in 1998. From 1976 to 1999, he was with the Department of Mathematics, Samara State Architecture and Civil Engineering University. From 2000 to 2002, he was with the Department of Postgraduate Study and Investigations at the Chihuahua Institute of Technology, Chihuahua, Mexico. In 2002, he joined the Department of Control Engineering and Robotics, Division of Electrical Engineering of Engineering Faculty at National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Mexico. He is also an International Chair of INIRA, France, and High Level Foreign Expert of Ministry of Education of China. His research interests are Variable-structure Systems. Between 2014 and 2018, he served as a Chair of TC on Variable-Structure and Sliding-Mode Control of IEEE Control Systems Society. He is an author and editor of ten books and seventeen special issues devoted to sliding-mode control. He won a Scopus prize for the best cited Mexican Scientists in Mathematics and Engineering 2010. Professor Fridman has served as an associated editor in different leading journals of control theory and applied mathematics. He was working as an invited professor in more than 20 universities and research laboratories of Argentina, Australia, Austria, China, France, Germany, Italy, Israel, and Spain.
