Thoroughly classroom-tested and proven to be a valuable self-study companion, Linear Control System Analysis and Design: Sixth Edition provides an intensive overview of modern control theory and conventional control system design using in-depth explanations, diagrams, calculations, and tables.
Keeping mathematics to a minimum, the book is designed with the undergraduate in mind, first building a foundation, then bridging the gap between control theory and its real-world application.
Computer-aided design accuracy checks (CADAC) are used throughout the text to enhance computer literacy.
Each CADAC uses fundamental concepts to ensure the viability of a computer solution. Completely updated and packed with student-friendly features, the sixth edition presents a range of updated examples using MATLAB (R), as well as an appendix listing MATLAB functions for optimizing control system analysis and design.
Over 75 percent of the problems presented in the previous edition have been revised or replaced.
