Design of Feedback Control Systems is designed 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, especiallyMATLABRG. 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 separatechapters 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 thetext. Clear and accessible, Design of Feedback Control Systems, Fourth Edition, makes complicated methodology comprehensible to a wide spectrum of students. Features * Keyed to today's dominant design tool, MATLABRG * Includes drill problems for gauging knowledge and skills after each topic * Provides state-of-the-art design examples * Uses marginal summaries to guide the reader * Introduces new ideas in the context of previous material, with a guide to the information that follows * Presents practical examples of the latest advances in control sciences
Raymond T. Stefani, Bahram Shahian, and Gene Hostetter are all at California State University, Long Beach.
