Automatic control systems have become essential features in virtually every area of technology, from machine tools to aerospace vehicles. This book is a comprehensive, clearly written introduction to automatic control engineering. The author begins with the fundamentals of modeling mechanical, electrical, and electromechanical systems in the state variable format. The emphasis is on classical feedback control theory and design, and their application to practical electromechanical and aerospace problems. Following a careful grounding in classical control theory, the author introduces modern control theory, including digital control and nonlinear system analysis. Over 230 problems help the reader apply principles discussed in the text to practical engineering situations. Engineering students and practicing engineers will find what they need to know about control system analysis and design in this valuable text. Solutions manual available.

Editorial Reviews

"The author does a super job with the topics he has chosen to cover. The presentation is clear and well done. The text would be ideal for students without a modelling and/or linear systems background. Also, it would be a valuable reference for both students and faculty who wish to complement their text models of physical systems." International Journal of Adaptive Control and Signal Processing
