Feedback Control Systems / Edition 3


  • NEW—SIMULINK simulation program—Illustrates feedback effects.
    • Helps demonstrate design examples and problems.
  • NEW—MATLAB's symbolic math is employed to verify transforms and to solve differential equations directly.
  • NEW—Computer verification of results.
    • Exposes users to a short MATLAB program when working almost all examples and problems.
  • NEW—Design procedures implemented in MATLAB m-files.
  • NEW—Improved practical application examples.
    • Allows the reader to better relate the mathematical developments to physical systems.
  • Chapter-end problems.
    • Most chapter-end problems lead the reader through a second method of the solution, so that they can verify results.
  • Transfer-function and state-variable models.
    • Familiarizes users with both models for the analysis and design of linear analog systems.
  • System stability discussion—Along with the Routh-Hurwitz stability criterion.
  • Coverage of nonlinear system analysis methods.
    • Emphasizes describing-function analysis, linearization, and the state-plane analysis.
  • Early coverage of expanded frequency-response design criteria.
    • Helps explain closed-loop systems.
  • Digital Control Systems.
    • Provides the reader with the basic principles of digital control.
  • Time-scaling differential equations section.

About the Author

Professor John M. Parr received his Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Auburn University in 1969, an MSEE from the Naval Postgraduate School in 1974, and a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Auburn University in 1988. A retired U.S. Navy Officer, he served as a Program Manager/Project Engineer at Naval Electronic Systems Command in Washington, DC and Officer in Charge - Naval Ammunition Production Engineering Center, Crane, Indiana in addition to sea duty in five ships. Dr. Parr participated in research related to the Space Defense Initiative at Auburn University before joining the faculty at the University of Evansville. Dr. Parr is a co-author of another successful Electrical Engineering textbook, Signals, System and Transforms, by Phillips, Parr and Riskin. He is a registered professional engineer in Indiana, and is a member of the scientific research society Sigma Xi, the American Society of Engineering Educators (ASEE), and a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE)
