Designed for graduate and upper-level undergraduate engineering students, this is an introduction to control systems, their functions, and their current role in engineering design. Organized from a design rather than an analysis viewpoint, it shows students how to carry out practical engineering design on all types of control systems. Covers basic analysis, operating and design techniques as well as hardware/software implementation. Includes case studies.
This text presents an organized treatment of the methods and tools used in engineering experimental work. It is designed for students laboratory courses, and practicing engineers engaged in experimental test and development work.
