This work presents traditional methods and current techniques of incorporating the computer into closed-loop dynamic systems control, combining conventional transfer function design and state variable concepts. Digital Control Designer - an award-winning software program which permits the solution of highly complex problems - is available on the CRC Press Website at http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9780824789145. This edition: supplies new coverage of the Ragazzini technique; describes digital filtering, including Butterworth prototype filters; and more.
