Modern Control EngineeringFor senior or graduatelevel students taking a first course in Control Theory (in departments of Mechanical, Electrical, Aerospace, and Chemical Engineering).
A comprehensive, seniorlevel textbook for control engineering.
Ogata's Modern Control Engineering, 5/e , offers the comprehensive coverage of continuoustime control systems that all senior students must have, including frequency response approach, rootlocus approach, and statespace 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 RootLocus Analysis (Chapter 6) and FrequencyResponse Analysis (Chapter 8). The author has also updated and revised many of the worked examples and endofchapter 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 19791982.
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!
User Review  Sourav Kundu  FlipkartLook.. 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
