Book Description

The book provides general knowledge of automatic control engineering and its applications.

Providing an overview of control theory and systems, the chapters introduce transfer functions, modeling of control systems, automatic control systems, block diagrams, and signal flow graphs. While control system analysis and design are accompanied by root-locus methods and frequency response analyses, distributed control systems, nonlinarity in control systems including Z-transformation are also presented.

With straightforward demonstrations, examples, and multiple-choice questions, this book can be used as a reference textbook for electrical and electronics engineering, computer control engineering, automation engineering, mechatronics engineering, mechanics, robotics, AI control systems, hydraulics, process engineering, safety control engineering, aeronautical and aerospace engineering, auto-pilot system, decision-making system, and stock exchange, and will be suitable for majors, non-majors, and experts in the field of science and technology.
