For two-semester, junior/senior-level courses in Industrial Electronics, Control Systems, Analog and Digital Control Systems, and Applied Control Systems. Thorough in topic coverage, and modern in the emphasis on computers as a problem solving tool, this text presents a comprehensive treatment of analog and digital control systems, with readable conceptual explanations and clearly written mathematical developments. Its computer-solving approach uses examples of both Mathcad and MATLABbut stresses the ability to use any suitable software to achieve successful results in solving problems and performing design.
