Overview

An up-to-date text designed for undergraduate courses in control systems engineering and principles of automatic controls. Focuses on design and implementation rather than just the mathematics of control systems. Using a balanced approach, the text presents a unified, energy-based approach to modeling; covers analysis techniques for the models presented; and offers a detailed study of digital control and the implementation of digital controllers. Includes examples and homework problems.
