The definitive guide to control system design
Modern Control System Theory and Design, Second Edition offers the most comprehensive treatment of control systems available today. Its unique text/software combination integrates classical and modern control system theories, while promoting an interactive, computer-based approach to design solutions. The sheer volume of practical examples, as well as the hundreds of illustrations of control systems from all engineering fields, make this volume accessible to students and indispensable for professional engineers.
This fully updated Second Edition features a new chapter on modern control system design, including state-space design techniques, Ackermann's formula for pole placement, estimation, robust control, and the H method for control system design. Other notable additions to this edition are:
Free MATLAB software containing problem solutions, which can be retrieved from The Mathworks, Inc., anonymous FTP server at
Programs and tutorials on the use of MATLAB incorporated directly into the text
A complete set of working digital computer programs
Reviews of commercial software packages for control system analysis
An extensive set of new, worked-out, illustrative solutions added in dedicated sections at the end of chapters
Expanded end-of-chapter problems--one-third with answers to facilitate self-study
An updated solutions manual containing solutions to the remaining two-thirds of the problems
Superbly organized and easy-to-use, Modern Control System Theory and Design, Second Edition is an ideal textbook for introductory courses in control systems and an excellent professional reference. Its interdisciplinary approach makes it invaluable for practicing engineers in electrical, mechanical, aeronautical, chemical, and nuclear engineering and related areas.
