Overview

About the Product

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, Lyapunovs 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

  • Includes a CD-ROM with MATLAB applications and third-party simulations with practical design techniques and observations of real control systems.

  • 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.
