This very accessible text integrates realistic examples throughout its presentation of control systems engineering. By employing the remarkable capabilities of today's computers and programming techniques, the authors describe methodologies for reducing computational difficulties and improving insight into essential areas of study. It maintains a careful balance between theory and practice and uses MATLAB and SIMULINK where appropriate. It presents three system design studies that utilize techniques presented throughout the book, including an automobile cruise control system, a phase-locked motor speed control system, and a system to control the orbit of a satellite.
