This book provides an integrated treatment of continuous-time and discrete-time systems. It emphasizes the interdisciplinary nature of the subject and examples have been drawn from various engineering disciplines to illustrate the basic system concepts. In particular, the book deals with the modeling of practical systems involving various hardware. Time and frequency domain techniques of the analysis and design of control systems have been discussed at length. Consisting of 16 chapters, this new edition has been improved by the addition of numerous real-world examples, and by the inclusion of PID controller design, a comparison table of long/lead compensators, industrial OPAMP compensating networks and a design example using root-locus technique."Control Systems Engineering 5e" is an outstanding text book which can be used at advanced undergraduate or post graduate level on diverse courses within the broad scope of engineering and will be a valued addition to any engineering library.
