This introduction provides an in-depth, comprehensive treatment of a collection of classical and state-space approaches to control system design. It ties the methods together so that a designer is able to pick the method that best fits the problem at hand. Includes case studies and comprehensive examples with close integration of MATLAB throughout. Clearly marks problems to indicate which section they are drawn from for easier reference. Provides a logical presentation of a control engineerrsquo;s approach to key problems (such as rejection of disturbances, improvement in steady-state errors, and better dynamic response); compares the performance of the feedback structure to that of open-loop control. A useful reference for aerospace, mechanical, or electrical engineers who want to brush up on their skills in dynamic systems.
