Design of Feedback Control Systems, Fourth Edition, is written specifically for electrical and mechanical engineering students in advanced undergraduate control systems courses. Now in its fourth edition, this tutorial-style textbook has been completely updated to include the use of modern analytical software, especially MATLABRG. It thoroughly discusses classical control theory and state variable control theory, as well as advanced and digital control topics. Each topic is preceded by analytical considerations that provide a well-organized parallel treatment of analysis and design. Design is presented in separate chapters devoted to root locus, frequency domain, and state space viewpoints. Treating the use of computers as a means rather than as an end, this student-friendly book contains new "Computer-Aided Learning" sections that demonstrate how MATLABRG can be used to verify all figures and tables in the text. Clear and accessible, Design of Feedback Control Systems, Fourth Edition, makes complicated methodology accessible to a wide spectrum of students. Features BL Keyed to today's dominant design tool, MATLABRG BL Includes drill problems for gauging knowledge and skills after each topic BL Provides state-of-the-art design examples BL Uses marginal summaries to guide the student BL Introduces new ideas in the context of previous material, with a guide to the information that follows BL Presents practical examples of the latest advances in control sciences
