An Essential Guide to Control Engineering Fundamentals

Understand the day-to-day procedures of today's control engineer with the pragmatic insights and techniques contained in this unique resource. Written in clear, concise language, Practical Control Engineering shows, step-by-step, how engineers simulate real-world phenomena using dynamic models and algorithms. Learn how to handle single and multiple-staged systems, implement error-free feedback control, eliminate anomalies, and work in the frequency and discrete-time domains. Extensive appendices cover basic calculus, differential equations, vector math, Laplace and Z-transforms, and Matlab basics. Practical Control Engineering explains how to:

  • Gain insight into control engineering and process analysis
  • Write and debug algorithms that simulate physical processes
  • Understand feedback, feedforward, open loops, and cascade controls
  • Build behavioral models using basic applied mathematics
  • Analyze lumped, underdamped, and distributed processes
  • Comprehend matrix, vector, and state estimation concepts
  • Convert from continuous to discrete-time and frequency domains
  • Filter out white noise, colored noise, and stochaic disturbances
