9781420091236: Essentials of Control Techniques and Theory

Carefully separating the essential from the ornamental, Essentials of Control Techniques and Theory presents the nuts and bolts for designing a successful controller. It discusses the theory required to support the art of designing a working controller as well as the various aspects to convince a client, employer, or examiner of your expertise.

A Compelling Account of the Basics of Control Theory
Control solutions for practicing engineers

Using the author’s own Javascript On-Line Learning Interactive Environment for Simulation (Jollies), the text relies on computer-based graphical analysis methods, such as Nyquist, Nichols, root locus, and phase-plane, to illustrate how useful computer simulation can be for analyzing both linear and nonlinear systems. It explains step-by-step the design and modeling of various control systems, including discrete time systems and an inverted pendulum. Along with offering many web-based simulations, the book shows how mathematics, such as vectors, matrices, and the differential equations that govern state variables, can help us understand the concepts that underpin the controller’s effects.

From frequency domain analysis to time-domain state-space representation, this book covers many aspects of classical and modern control theory. It presents important methods for designing and analyzing linear systems and controllers.

About the Author:

John Billingsley is Chair of Mechatronic Engineering at the University of Southern Queensland in Toowoomba, Australia, and directs technology research in the National Centre for Engineering in Agriculture (NCEA).

Review:

...a valuable and much-needed demystification of control theory ... The role of the blackboard is assumed by a well-matched and balanced Web site, on which JavaScript-based simulations of the book’s examples and experiments can be run (and rerun with changed parameters). ... The complement of the lucid and reasoned thinking out loud is, along with coherent excerpts of JavaScript, in the hard copy. ... Forgetting for the moment that this is an intrinsically excellent book, it is also the right control theory book at the right time. ... This book has my highest recommendation among control theory books.
―George Hacken, Computing Reviews, August 2010

This book contains some basic notions and techniques from the control theory presented from the point of view of an engineer. Special attention is paid to the classical frequency-domain methods, practical observers, and different principles of controller design. Using the author's own Javascript On-Line Learning Interactive Environment for Simulation (Jollies), the design and modeling of various control systems is explained step-by-step (as the inverted pendulum). ... The book contains a large number of illustrative examples (including the corresponding Javascript codes and simulation results) helping to understand the application of the control theory to design of working controllers. ... very useful as a complementary reading for a course in control theory.
― Mikhail I. Krastanov, in Zentralblatt MATH, 1198-1
