Highly regarded for its accessibility and focus on practical applications, Control Systems Engineering offers students a comprehensive introduction to the design and analysis of feedback systems that support modern technology. Going beyond theory and abstract mathematics to translate key concepts into physical control systems design, this text presents real-world case studies, challenging chapter questions, and detailed explanations with an emphasis on computer-aided design. Abundant illustrations facilitate comprehension, with over 800 photos, diagrams, graphs, and tables designed to help students visualize complex concepts.
Updated tutorials reflect the latest versions of MATLAB, Control System Toolbox, Simulink, and Symbolic Math Toolbox. Computer experiments using MATLAB, Simulink, and the Control System Toolbox allow readers to verify concepts in the text via simulation. In addition, a set of MATLAB and Simulink files is available for download.
