Solutions manual available upon qualifying course adoption
This book uses numerous in-depth explanations, diagrams, calculations, and tables to provide an intensive overview of modern control theory and control system design. Mathematics are kept to a minimum, and engineering applications are stressed throughout. Completely updated and packed with student-friendly features, the sixth edition presents a range of updated examples using MATLAB®, as well as an appendix listing MATLAB functions for optimizing control system analysis and design. Over 75 percent of the problems presented in the previous edition have been revised or replaced.
