First formulates conditions for Liapunov stability; then designs the system within these limitations. NEW TO THIS EDITION: *NEW-Reorganizes content to cover all basic materials of control systems in the first 10 chapters, leaving advanced topics (such as state-space analysis and design of control systems) to the last 3. *NEW-Gives detailed explanations of how to write MATLAB programs to solve a variety of problems in control engineering. Includes MATLAB approaches to: *Obtain step response, ramp response, and impulse response of control systems. *Plotting root loci, Bode diagrams, and Nyquist diagrams. *Solving (both analytically and computationally) pole-placement problems, observer design problems, and quadratic optimal control problems. *NEW-Expands coverage of the design aspects of control engineering - with many new design problems. *NEW-Adds an introduction to robust control (Ch.10). * NEW-Adds many new computational problems - all solved with MATLAB.Hide synopsis

Description:New. This text is designed for the undergraduate students of...New. This text is designed for the undergraduate students of electrical, mechanical, or chemical engineering for a course in CONTROL SYSTEMS. It is a comprehensive treatment of the analysis and design of continuous-time control systems. The basic concepts involved are emphasized and all the material has been organized towards a gradual development of control theory. Throughout the book, computational problems are solved with MATLAB. The text features an abundance of examples and solved problems that help the student gain a basic understanding of system behaviour and control.

The content of the book is fine but the paper is so thin, so it is transparent to the other side. I hate the international copy, the quality is just so intolerable, the paper is like tissue paper.
