This book is about the design of digital controllers. An attempt has been made to present digital control from scratch. The book is organized into five parts. The first deals with modelling, the second concerned with the topic of signal processing, the third devoted to identification of plants from measurements, fourth section looks at the transfer function approach to control design and the last section is devoted to state space techniques for control design. The topics of observers, Kalman filter and combined controller and observer have also been included.
Presents digital control from scratch
Includes numerous examples, problems, solutions and Matlab code.
Developed from three existing lecture courses in digital control, systems identification and intermediate process control.
Concludes each chapter with a ‘problems’ section.
Highlights the advantages of the polynomial approach.
Assumes little or no prior knowledge of analogue control.
Offers a very thorough treatment of the z-transform and frequency-domain analysis.
Includes a thorough treatment of identification.
Attempts the tuning of PID controllers using model-based control techniques.
This textbook is written for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students in control engineering and electronic engineering. It will also be of interest to practicing control systems engineers and researchers in this field.
