Notable author Katsuhiko Ogata presents the only new book available to discuss, in sufficient detail, the details of MATLAB® materials needed to solve many analysis and design problems associated with control systems. Complements a large number of examples with in-depth explanations, encouraging complete understanding of the MATLAB approach to solving problems. Distills the large volume of MATLAB information available to focus on those materials needed to study analysis and design problems of deterministic, continuous-time control systems. Covers conventional control systems such as transient response, root locus, frequency response analyses and designs; analysis and design problems associated with state space formulation of control systems; and useful MATLAB approaches to solve optimization problems. A useful self-study guide for practicing control engineers.
