For senior or graduate-level students taking a first course in Control Theory (in departments of Mechanical, Electrical, Aerospace, and Chemical Engineering).
A comprehensive, senior-level textbook for control engineering.
About this title
Chapter 8 first discusses PID control in general and then presents two-degrees-of-freedom control systems – Presents a computational (MATLAB) method to determine system parameters so the system will have the desired transient characteristics.
An improved chapter on the design of control systems in state space (Chapter 10) – This chapter treats pole placement and observer design and includes quadratic optimal control. MATLAB is extensively used in the design problems using pole placement and observer design.
An in-depth treatment of topics emphasizes both the basic concepts and the design aspects of control systems.
An accessible presentation that avoids highly mathematical arguments. The author introduces mathematical proofs only when they contribute to an understanding of the material.
Over 150 chapter-end worked problems and 180 unsolved problems clarify students’ understanding of the material at strategic points throughout the text.
An introduction to the two-degrees-of-freedom control system and introduction to robust control. Presents a MATLAB approach to the design of high performance control systems.
A comprehensive coverage of root-locus analyses not found in other texts.
Detailed coverage of frequency response of control systems.
