About the Book

Thoroughly classroom-tested and proven to be a valuable self-study companion, Linear Control System Analysis and Design: Fifth Edition uses in-depth explanations, diagrams, calculations, and tables, to provide an intensive overview of modern control theory and conventional control system design. The authors keep the mathematics to a minimum while stressing real-world engineering challenges.

Completely updated and packed with student-friendly features, the Fifth Edition presents a wide range of examples using MATLAB® and TOTAL-PC, as well as an appendix listing MATLAB functions for optimizing control system analysis and design. Eighty percent of the problems presented in the previous edition have been revised to further reinforce concepts necessary for current electrical, aeronautical, astronautical, and mechanical applications.


“This book succeeds in giving an intensive overview of modern control theory and conventional control system design of both analog and sampled-data single-input single-output feedback control systems.”

—Nicholas Karampetakis, Zentralblatt MATH
