Practical Control Engineering: Guide for Engineers, Managers, and Practitioners

Written for students and practicing engineers, this book provides comprehensive coverage of practical control engineering by showing readers how to simulate real-world phenomena using dynamic control models and algorithms. Appendices cover basic calculus, differential equations, vector math, Laplace and Z-transforms, and MATLAB basics. Topics covered include control algorithms, matrices and higher order process models, stochastic process disturbances and the discrete time domain, and the state-space equation.

MATLAB is used to solve some examples in the text. Symbolic Math Toolbox, Control System Toolbox, Signal Processing Toolbox, and System Identification Toolbox are also used in some examples.
