This comprehensive reference and textbook describes the design and implementation of high-performance feedback controllers for engineering systems. It emphasizes the frequency-domain design methods based on loop shaping, Bode integrals, and nonlinear dynamic compensation. It also provides numerous problems with practical applications, illustrations, and plots, as well as MATLAB and Simulink simulation and design examples. The first six chapters support a one-semester course in linear control. The rest of the book considers the issues of complex system simulation, robustness, global stability, and nonlinear control.
