Modern Control EngineeringThis comprehensive treatment of the continuoustime control systems provides a gradual development of control theory  and shows how to solve all computational problems with MATLAB. It avoids highly mathematical arguments, and features an abundance of examples and worked problems throughout. This edition reorganizes content to cover all basic materials of control systems in the first ten chapters, leaving advanced topics to the last. It provides detailed explanations on how to write MATLAB programs to solve a variety of problems in control engineering, expands coverage of the design aspects of control engineering with many new design problems; adds an introduction to robust control; and includes many new computational problems  all solved with MATLAB.

Review: Modern Control Engineering
User Review  Tawfeeq  GoodreadsNice Book! recommended for beginners. Read full review
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
