Description

The primary function of this book is to serve as a textbook on linear systems and control. It is aimed principally at undergraduates taking courses in Electrical Engineering, Electronics or Mechanical Engineering who are in the penultimate and final years of an Honours degree. Because the text is closely integrated with the use of a widely available software package, it will also be of interest and use to a more expert audience with a control background, but who may not be familiar with these invaluable tools. Finally, it may be of use to others who may not be control specialists, but who need to acquire a background of control for other purposes. Some of the material has been used successfully for such a purpose with an M.Sc programme for Power Engineering students.

Contents

Some basic techniques - the Laplace transform, matrix concepts, system descriptions, transfer function and state space; applying the techniques - system modelling, model manipulation, design aims; sampled data systems - contrasting continuous and sampled data systems, the z-transform; state variables - state variables revisited - modelling, transformations, amplitude scaling; nonlinear systems - nonlinear problems, system modelling, exact (phase plane) methods; MATLAB-4 - MATLAB-4, SIMULINK; tutorial work - worked examples with solutions, standardized data sheets.
