Control System DesignDescription 
For both undergraduate and graduate courses in Control System Design. Using a “how to do it” approach with a strong emphasis on realworld design, this text provides comprehensive, singlesource coverage of the full spectrum of control system design. Each of the text's 8 parts covers an area in controlranging from signals and systems (Bode Diagrams, Root Locus, etc.), to SISO control (including PID and Fundamental Design TradeOffs) and MIMO systems (including Constraints, MPC, Decoupling, etc.). 

Features 
 Singlesource coverage of the full spectrum of controlFrom simple classical ideas to sophisticated multivariable problems.
 A major emphasis on design issues not found in other books on the topicSuch as digital and hybrid control systems, PID control including classical tuning methods, integration of state space and transfer function approaches, including Kalman filter and linear quadratic regulator.
 Practical issues of realworld control system design are emphasizedThe text covers the traditional topics, but goes well beyond introductory topics to consider implementations of PID control, Smith predictors, fundamental limitations in design arising from delays, right half plan zeros and right half plane poles, impact of actuator limitations (slew rate and amplitude constraints).

Back Cover 
Much has been written about the need to revitalize control education. This book addresses the problem by providing a refreshing new approach to teaching control system design. The book strongly emphasizes realworld design, making it appropriate for the firsttime learner as well as for engineers in industry as a technology refresher. The book has been used by the authors for both undergraduate and graduate courses at several universities. The authors' experience is split evenly between academia and industry, which is reflected in the contents of the book. It is divided into 8 parts covering essential aspects in control, ranging from signals and systems (Bode diagrams, root locus, etc.), to SISO control (including PID and fundamental design tradeoffs), and MIMO systems (including constraints, MPC, decoupling, etc.). A key aspect of the book is the frequent use of real world design examples drawn directly from the authors' industrial experience. These are represented by over 15 substantial case studies ranging from distillation columns to satellite tracking. The book is also liberally supported by modern teaching aids available on both an accompanying CDROM and Companion Website. Resources to be found there include MATLAB® routines for all examples; extensive PowerPoint lecture notes based on the book; and a totally unique Java Appletdriven "virtual laboratory" that allows readers to interact with the realworld case studies.
