This thorough, clearly written introduction to automatic control engineering begins with the fundamentals of modeling mechanical, electrical, and electromechanical systems in the state variable format. The emphasis is on classical feedback control theory and design, and their application to practical electromechanical and aerospace problems. After discussing classical control theory, the author introduces modern control theory, including digital control and nonlinear system analysis. Over 230 problems relate principles to practical engineering situations.
