Written for junior and senior undergraduate students in mechanical, electrical, and aerospace engineering programs, this book shows how to create and analyze mathematical models of dynamic mechanical, electrical/electromagnetic, thermal, and fluid/pneumatic systems with the practical goal of using this knowledge to design and test various real-world systems. Topics covered include transfer function approach, state space approach, the Laplace transform and coupled-field systems.
MATLAB and Simulink are used to solve examples in the book. An appendix with a list of useful commands from Control System Toolbox and Symbolic Math Toolbox is also included. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB code files is available for download.
