Description

A practical text/reference on modern control applications in electrical, mechanical, and aerospace engineering.

Features

  • briefly reviews system modeling and classical linear control in the transform domain.
  • develops the linear algebra/matrix theory needed for state variable analysis.
  • explores dynamical systems and their fundamental properties, design methods of pole-placement/observers, and optimal control theory.
  • contains numerous worked-out problems.
