This revision of the best selling book for the digital controls course features new running applications and integration of MATLAB, the most widely used software in controls. Coverage of root locus design and the Fourier transform have also been increased.
A text for a first course in discrete control systems or a first course in digital filters, at senior or first-year graduate level. Covers discrete-time systems and the z-transform, stability analysis techniques, digital controller design, and digital filter structures. The appendices list design equations, and review matrices, Mason's gain formula, and the Laplace transform. This third edition includes discussion of the Fourier transform, and new problems. Can be used with or without MATLAB software. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
