From the Publisher Offers unified treatment of conventional and modern continuous and discrete control theory and demonstrates how to apply the theory to realistic control system design problems. Along with linear and nonlinear, digital and optimal control systems, it presents four case studies of actual designs. The majority of solutions contained in the book and the problems at the ends of the chapters were generated using the commercial software package, MATLAB, and is available free to the users of the book by returning a postcard contained with the book to the MathWorks, Inc. This software also contains the following features/utilities created to enhance MATLAB and several of the MathWorks' toolboxes: Tutorial File which contains the essentials necessary to understand the MATLAB interface (other books require additional books for full comprehension), Demonstration m-file which gives the users a feel for the various utilities included, OnLine HELP, Synopsis File which reviews and highlights the features of each chapter. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover The definitive guide to control system design

Modern Control System Theory and Design, Second Edition offers the most comprehensive treatment of control systems available today. Its unique text/software combination integrates classical and modern control system theories, while promoting an interactive, computer-based approach to design solutions. The sheer volume of practical examples, as well as the hundreds of illustrations of control systems from all engineering fields, make this volume accessible to students and indispensable for professional engineers.

This fully updated Second Edition features a new chapter on modern control system design, including state-space design techniques, Ackermann's formula for pole placement, estimation, robust control, and the H method for control system design. Other notable additions to this edition are:

  • Free MATLAB software containing problem solutions, which can be retrieved from The Mathworks, Inc., anonymous FTP server at
  • Programs and tutorials on the use of MATLAB incorporated directly into the text
  • A complete set of working digital computer programs
  • Reviews of commercial software packages for control system analysis
  • An extensive set of new, worked-out, illustrative solutions added in dedicated sections at the end of chapters
  • Expanded end-of-chapter problems—one-third with answers to facilitate self-study
  • An updated solutions manual containing solutions to the remaining two-thirds of the problems

Superbly organized and easy-to-use, Modern Control System Theory and Design, Second Edition is an ideal textbook for introductory courses in control systems and an excellent professional reference. Its interdisciplinary approach makes it invaluable for practicing engineers in electrical, mechanical, aeronautical, chemical, and nuclear engineering and related areas.
