Chaos is a phenomenon that occurs in nature, from as large as the universe to as tiny as a particle. The concepts of chaology have penetrated into virtually all branches of science and engineering. In the field of electrical and electronic engineering, recent research has covered a wide spectrum, including the analysis of chaos, the stabilization of chaos, the stimulation of chaos, and the application of chaos.
There are many books that deal with the field of chaology, focusing on the theoretical analysis of chaotic systems and the mathematical formulation of chaotic behaviors. In recent years, some books have begun to deal with chaos in electronic engineering, especially in the areas of electronic circuits and telecommunications. Although chaos and its practical application in electric drive systems have been widely published as papers in learned journals, a book that comprehensively discusses chaos in electric drive systems is highly desirable.
The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive discussion on chaos in electric drive systems, including the analysis of their chaotic behaviors, the control of their chaotic characteristics, and the application of their chaotic features. Contrary to other books which usually involve intensive mathematics or idealized experiments, this book aims to use a minimum of mathematical treatments, extensive computer simulations, and realistic experimentations to discuss chaos in various electric drive systems, including DC drive ...
