Abstract : It is our honor and privilege to serve as Guest Editor of the special section on Intelligent Control for the International Journal of Control, Automation, and Systems (http://www.ijcas.com).
Nowadays, highly complex systems are required due to increasing technological demands. These complex systems usually cannot be well-controlled by conventional approaches. Intelligent control of these complex systems is necessary to ensure that high performance can be achieved and maintained under different environments. Consequently, the study and design of intelligent control are crucial to complex systems.
Intelligent control is a fusion of a number of research areas in systems and control, computer science, operations research and others. Intelligent control mainly includes: adaptive control, fuzzy control, neural net-based control, knowledge based control, hybrid intelligent control, learning control, evolutionary mechanism based control, multi-sensor integration, failure diagnosis, reconfigurable control, and so on. They are often interconnected to operate within an architecture that is hierarchical and often distributed for complex dynamical systems. The special section aims at exhibiting the latest research achievement, findings and ideas in the areas of intelligent control.
Out of 38 submissions from 12 countries and regions across America, Asia and Europe, this special section selects 5 representative papers. All submissions were peer reviewed according to the journal guidelines. The papers published in the special section describe the latest research findings and ideas in the areas of intelligent control. The papers cover a wide range of interesting issues in intelligent control, which can be described in brief as follows.
