Design of Feedback Control Systems is designed for electrical and mechanical engineering students in advanced undergraduate control systems courses. Now in its fourth edition, this tutorial-style textbook has been completely updated to include the use of modern analytical software, especially MATLAB®. It thoroughly discusses classical control theory and state variable control theory, as well as advanced and digital control topics. Each topic is preceded by analytical considerations that provide a well-organized parallel treatment of analysis and design. Design is presented in separate chapters devoted to root locus, frequency domain, and state space viewpoints. Treating the use of computers as a means rather than as an end, this student-friendly book contains new "Computer-Aided Learning" sections that demonstrate how MATLAB® can be used to verify all figures and tables in the text. Clear and accessible, Design of Feedback Control Systems, Fourth Edition, makes complicated methodology comprehensible to a wide spectrum of students.
