## Control Systems: Principles and DesignPart of the McGraw-Hill Core Concepts Series, Control Systems: Principles and Design is a textbook for a control systems course at the advanced undergraduate level. The book presents a balanced approach, incorporating the frequency-response, root locus and state-variable methods as well as discussing the digital control of systems.MATLAB and real-world problems and examples are integrated throughout the book, so that practical applications are emphasized over theory. This is a concise, less expensive alternative. This series is edited by Dick Dorf. |
