Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The last twenty years have seen a radical step-change in the capability and application of Control Engineering, brought about by advances in computational speed and capacity. Control design for contemporary, complex engineering systems has developed alongside Computer Aided Control System Design, powerful real-time embedded computation, and both off-line and on-line optimization techniques.

This Special Issue will bring together papers, which particularly describe recent advances in Control Engineering in industrial applications and complex engineering systems, describing the application of novel theory across all areas of Automation. Papers which include practical experimental results are particularly encouraged, as are papers which set Control advances in the wider context of, for example, society, economics, energy and environment.

Application topics might include:
Aeronautic/Automotive/Transportation Engineering
Autonomous Vehicles
Biomedical Engineering
Electrical Power Systems(including Renewables and Smart Grid)
Environmental Engineering
Manufacturing and Process Control

Control Theory topics might include:
Artificial Intelligence and Heuristics
Optimisation and Search
Non-linear, Adaptive and Robust Control
Advances in PID
Systems Identification
Model based Control
Fault Detection and Diagnostics
