Written in Italian, this book is targeted at a senior/graduate level coursein control. The text focuses on computer controlled system analysis anddesign. Topics include z-transform, signal sampling and reconstruction,discrete transfer function, stability criteria, design specifications,design technique via discretization, auxiliary w-plane, analytic design,digital PID regulators, minimum variance control, self-tuning adaptivecontrollers, and realization problems in digital control. Appendices includea z-transform table, system modeling via graphical techniques, CAD toolsfor control design, Diophantine equation, and the Mason formula. The methodologicaltopics are illustrated through a number of exercises using MATLAB andSimulink.
