Designed for a short course on control systems or as a review for the professional engineer, this book provides a lucid introduction to modern control systems topics. The five chapters, “State-Variable Analysis of Continuous-Time Systems,” “Analysis of Discrete-Time Systems,” “Stability Analysis of Non-Linear Systems,” “Optimal Control,” and “Adaptive Control” have been written to emphasize concepts and provide the basic mathematical derivations. Complete coverage of standard topics, e.g., eigenvalues, eigenvectors, the z-transform, Lyapunov’s Method, controllability, observability, etc. are discussed. Numerous examples and exercises have also been included in the book for self-study. A CD-ROM with MATLAB applications and third-party simulations provides practical design techniques and observations of real control systems.

The contents of the CD-ROM are available for download under the Samples tab.

Features & Benefits

  • MATLAB applications and third-party simulations with practical design techniques and observations of real control systems can be downloaded from the Samples tab.
  • Uses a state-variable approach which is more suitable for digital computation and more effective for the design of linear, non-linear, time-variant or time-invariant, SISO, or MIMO systems.
