For senior or graduate-level students taking a first course in Control Theory (in departments of Mechanical, Electrical, Aerospace, and Chemical Engineering). A comprehensive, senior-level textbook for control engineering. Ogata's Modern Control Engineering, 5/e , offers the comprehensive coverage of continuous-time control systems that all senior students must have, including frequency response approach, root-locus approach, and state-space approach to analysis and design of control systems. The text provides a gradual development of control theory, shows how to solve all computational problems with MATLAB, and avoids highly mathematical arguments. A wealth of examples and worked problems are featured throughout the text. The new edition includes improved coverage of Root-Locus Analysis (Chapter 6) and Frequency-Response Analysis (Chapter 8). The author has also updated and revised many of the worked examples and end-of-chapter problems. This text is ideal for control systems engineers.
Written as a companion volume to the author's Solving Control Engineering Problems with MATLAB, this indispensable guide illustrates the power of MATLAB as a tool for synthesizing control systems, emphasizing pole placement, and optimal systems design.
Notable author Katsuhiko Ogata presents the only new book available to discuss, in sufficient detail, the details of MATLAB® materials needed to solve many analysis and design problems associated with control systems. Complements a large number of examples with in-depth explanations, encouraging complete understanding of the MATLAB approach to solving problems. Distills the large volume of MATLAB information available to focus on those materials needed to study analysis and design problems of deterministic, continuous-time control systems. Covers conventional control systems such as transient response, root locus, frequency response analyses and designs; analysis and design problems associated with state space formulation of control systems; and useful MATLAB approaches to solve optimization problems. A useful self-study guide for practicing control engineers.
A comprehensive treatment of the analysis and design of discrete-time control systems which provides a gradual development of the theory by emphasizing basic concepts and avoiding highly mathematical arguments.
