In recent years, automatic control systems have been rapidly increasing in importance in all fields of engineering. The applications of control systems cover a very wide range, from the design of precision control devices such as delicate electronic equipment to the design of massive equipment such as that used for the manufacture of steel or other industrial processes. Microprocessors have added a new dimension to the capability of control systems. New applications for automatic controls are continually being discovered.
This book offers coverage of control engineering beginning with discussions of how typical control systems may be represented by block diagrams. This is accomplished by first demonstrating how to represent each component or part of a system as a simple block diagram, then explaining how these individual diagrams may be connected to form the overall block diagram, just as the actual components are connected to form the complete control system. Because actual control systems frequently contain nonlinear components, considerable emphasis is given to such components. The book goes on to show that important information concerning the basic or inherent operating characteristics of a system may be obtained from knowledge of the steady-state behavior.
Continuing on in the book's coverage, readers will find information involving: how the linear differential equations that describe the operation of control systems may be solved algebraically by the use of Laplace transforms; general characteristics of transient behavior; the application of the root-locus method to the design of control systems; the use of the analog computer to simulate control systems; state-space methods; digital control systems; frequency-response methods; and system compensation.
