Description

For junior/senior-level Control Theory courses in Electrical, Mechanical, and Aerospace Engineering.

This text offers a thorough analysis of the principles of classical and modern feedback control. Organizing topic coverage into three sections—linear analog control systems, linear digital control systems, and nonlinear analog control systems—helps students understand the difference between mathematical models and the physical systems that the models represent.
