## Book Description

This comprehensive treatment of the analysis and design of continuous-time control systems provides a *gradual* development of control theory—and shows how to solve *all* computational problems with MATLAB. It avoids highly mathematical arguments, and features an abundance of examples and worked problems throughout the book. Chapter topics include the Laplace transform; mathematical modeling of mechanical systems, electrical systems, fluid systems, and thermal systems; transient and steady-state-response analyses, root-locus analysis and control systems design by the root-locus method; frequency-response analysis and control systems design by the frequency-response; two-degrees-of-freedom control; state space analysis of control systems and design of control systems in state space. For control systems engineers.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

This book presents a comprehensive treatment of the analysis and design of control systems. It is written at the level of the senior engineering (mechanical, electrical, aerospace, and chemical) student and is intended to be used as a text for the first course in control systems. The prerequisite on the part of the reader is that he or she has had introductory courses on differential equations, vector-matrix analysis, circuit analysis, and mechanics.

By Aisu Roma

This text was difficult to get into and not recommended if you are looking to study the subject on your own. I purchased this for a class and the professor had a very good understanding of controls and both chemical and electrical systems which made the use of this book easier. If your professor is not providing supplemental information, this book may not aid in your learning of the subject. The use of MATLAB syntax written in the book provided great assistance in performing the problems at the end of the chapter.

On another note, it seems that compared to the fourth edition, the fifth edition is missing some helpful subjects especially the review topics that were in previous editions.

Provides problems that aid in learning material. Written material sometimes not in depth enough but otherwise adequate. I would suggest using MATLAB examples on your own in order to gain a boost in learning material.

Quality of print not that good, but what can you expect for that price ;)
