Overview

Feedback Control Systems, 5e offers a thorough analysis of the principles of classical and modern feedback control in language that can be understood by students and practicing engineers with no prior background in the subject matter. Organized into three sections–linear analog control systems, linear digital control systems, and nonlinear analog control systems–this text helps readers understand the difference between mathematical models and the physical systems that the models represent. The Fifth edition provides a new introduction to modern control analysis and design for digital systems, the addition of emulation methods of design for digital control, and numerous other updates.

KEY TOPICS: The authors organize topic coverage into three sections–linear analog control systems, linear digital control systems, and nonlinear analog control systems, using the advanced features of MATLAB throughout the book

MARKET: For practicing engineers with some experience in linear-system analysis, who want to learn about control systems.
