Book Description

Digital Control Applications Illustrated with MATLAB® covers the modeling, analysis, and design of linear discrete control systems. Illustrating all topics using the micro-computer implementation of digital controllers aided by MATLAB®, Simulink®, and FEEDBACK<<®, this practical text:

  • Describes the process of digital control, followed by a review of Z-transforms, feedback control concepts, and s-to-z plane conversions, mappings, signal sampling, and data reconstruction

  • Presents mathematical representations of discrete systems affected by the use of advances in computing methodologies and the advent of computers

  • Demonstrates state-space representations and the construction of transfer functions and their corresponding discrete equivalents

  • Explores steady-state and transient response analysis using Root-Locus, as well as frequency response plots and digital controller design using Bode Plots

  • Explains the design approach, related design processes, and how to evaluate performance criteria through simulations and the review of classical designs

  • Studies advances in the design of compensators using the discrete equivalent and elucidates stability tests using transformations

  • Employs test cases, real-life examples, and drill problems to provide students with hands-on experience suitable for entry-level jobs in the industry

Digital Control Applications Illustrated with MATLAB® is an ideal textbook for digital control courses at the advanced undergraduate and graduate level.
