This clearly written and comprehensive Third Edition provides students with a background in continuous-time analog classical control concepts. Design examples at the end of most chapters support the text's strong design orientation, as do thorough discussions of design methods using root locus and Bode methods that go beyond rote memorization. An expanded, more versatile treatment of modeling includes a comprehensive variety of electrical, mechanical, and electromechanical systems. This gives instructors the option of emphasizing dynamic modeling, or using a system approach. Time domain compensation (an international design method), and pole placement (an important new design method) have been added. Row shifting is covered for Routh arrays, and several advanced topics such as loop transfer recovery and H¥ methods are also now covered. A software package-- Program CC: Introductory Version--and accompanying manual are correlated to the text, providing coding examples that illustrate how coding produces computer results. The software also offers students valuable practice solving problems using a computer: a skill that will benefit them greatly in the workplace.
