More About This Textbook


This book covers optimal design for multi-input/multi-output (MIMO) systems, providing not only the theoretical background, but also practical implementation techniques for control and estimation algorithms. Real-time implementation methods for a wide range of industries and control problems are detailed, including control of computer disk drives, chemical process control, and aircraft control. The book puts modern control design tools - based on solving matrix equation - well within the reach of the individual design engineer. You'll see how to design control systems using software programs, simulate these controllers on digital controllers, and then implement digital controllers on actual processors using digital signal processors (DSPs).

    A new textbook for a graduate course on Digital Control and Estimation contains many design and simulation examples, including programs in FORTRAN V. Covers controller and estimator implementation on the TI TMS320 C25 Digital Signal Processor, including implementation examples. No prerequisites in optimal control and estimation will be needed, as they are covered. Therefore, could be used as well for a combined course on Optimal Control and Kalman Filtering. A disk is available from the author. CONTENTS PART I- INTRODUCTION 1.
