Organized into three principal areas (analog control systems, digital control systems, and nonlinear analog control systems), Feedback Control Systems has been significantly revised to provide more practical examples, more thorough design coverage, and increased emphasis on computer-aided analysis and design using MATLAB. Specifically, the Third Edition features: clearer, more detailed explanations of basic material; a new section (4.5) dealing with time-scaling differential equations designed to help readers better relate the transfer functions of the systems of the examples to those of practical systems; additional practical applications in the form of examples and end-of-chapter problems that better relate mathematical developments to physical systems; and completely new end-of-chapter problems, many using MATLAB programming for solution verification. In addition, this edition retains the emphasis on practical systems, develops transfer-function and state-variable analog models, reviews matrices, develops an analytical design procedure that applies both root-locus design and Bode design, and presents a table of Laplace transforms and z-transforms in the appendices.

Designed for self-study by practicing engineers with little or no experience in control systems, this reputable text offers a thorough analysis of the principles of classical and modern feedback control. Revised and edited for optimum clarity, the text helps readers understand the difference between mathematical models and the physical systems that the models represent.

Editorial Reviews

This book deals with the analysis and design of closed-loop control systems, emphasizing in particular the practical aspects of analysis and design in three principle areas: analog control systems, digital control systems, and nonlinear analog control systems. It also highlights the difference between mathematical models and the physical systems that the models represent. Although Phillips (engineering, Auburn U.) and Harbor (computer science, U. of West Florida) intended this text to be used primarily in junior and senior level engineering classes they also recommend it as a self-study course for practicing engineers with experience in line-system analysis.
