Book Description

For senior or graduate-level students taking a first course in Control Theory (in departments of Mechanical, Electrical, Aerospace, and Chemical Engineering).

 

A comprehensive, senior-level textbook for control engineering.

 

Ogata’s Modern Control Engineering, 5/e , offers the comprehensive coverage of continuous-time control systems that all senior students must have, including frequency response approach, root-locus approach, and state-space approach to analysis and design of control systems. The text provides a gradual development of control theory, shows how to solve all computational problems with MATLAB, and avoids highly mathematical arguments. A wealth of examples and worked problems are featured throughout the text.

 

The new edition includes improved coverage of Root-Locus Analysis (Chapter 6) and Frequency-Response Analysis (Chapter 8). The author has also updated and revised many of the worked examples and end-of-chapter problems. This text is ideal for control systems engineers.

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 ;)
