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.

The book is excellent, it was the main text book for the Control & Systems Engineering Dept. at the University of Technology, Baghdad, Iraq during my study years 1979-1982.
Though not used the full
info very much in my career, but I try to use it when I encounter any challenge and I was able to explain IB Physics related topics for my son.
Thanks Mr. Ogata.
 

NOT for beginners!

Look.. Its a good book and there's no second thought about that. But if you're looking for a book at the undergraduate level (like I was) then this is not for you. First you should refer something as Nagrath Gopal or BS Manke.. After having gone through that, you should try this! Read full review
