The Art of Control Engineering provides a refreshingly new and practical treatment of the study of control systems. The opening chapters assume no prior knowledge of the subject and are suitable for use in introductory courses. The material then progresses smoothly to more advanced topics such as nonlinear systems, Kalman filtering, robust control, multivariable systems and discrete event controllers. Taking a practical perspective, the text demonstrates how the various techniques fit into the overall picture of control and stresses the ingenuity required in choosing the best tool for each job and deciding how to apply it. The most important topics are revisited at appropriate levels throughout the book, building up progressively deeper layers of knowledge. The Art of Control Engineering is an essential core text for undergraduate degree courses in control, electrical and electronic, systems and mechanical engineering. Its broad, practical coverage will also be very useful to postgraduate students and practising engineers.

An Introduction To Control Systems, This Book Provides The Reader With The Basic Concepts Of Control Theory As Developed Over The Years In Both The Frequency Domain And The Time Domain. The Opening Chapters Of The Book Present A Unified Treatment Of Modelling Of Dynamic Systems, The Classical Material On The Performance Of Feedback Systems Based On The Transfer Function Approach And The Stability Of Linear Systems. Further, Various Types Of Frequency Response Plots And The Compensation Of Control Systems Have Been Presented. In Particular, The Trial-And-Error Approach To The Design Of Lead Compensators, As Found In Most Textbooks, Has Been Replaced By A Direct Method Developed In The Late 1970S.Moreover, The Design Of Pole-Placement Compensators Using Transfer Functions, The Counterpart Of The Combined Observer And State Feedback Controller, Has Been Included For The First Time In A Book Appropriate For Undergraduate And Practicing Engineers. In This Third Edition The Scheme For Pole-Placement Compensation Has Been Made Consistent With That In Chapter 12. The Chapter On Digital Control, A Rapidly Developing And Popular Area Has Been Dealt With, In An Up-To-Date Manner, This Book Is An Attempt To Aid The Student Remove The Drudgery Out Of Numerical Computations, Along With Numerous Worked Examples And Drill Problems With Answers To Help The Student In Mastering The Subject.

Biomedical Applications of Control Engineering is a lucidly written textbook for graduate control engineering and biomedical engineering students as well as for medical practitioners who want to get acquainted with quantitative methods. It is based on decades of experience both in control engineering and clinical practice. The book begins by reviewing basic concepts of system theory and the modeling process. It then goes on to discuss control engineering application areas like: Different models for the human operator,dosage and timing optimization in oral drug administration, measuring symptoms of and optimal dopaminergic therapy in Parkinson’s disease, measurement and control of blood glucose levels both naturally and by means of external controllers in diabetes, and control of depth of anaesthesia using inhalational anaesthetic agents like sevoflurane using both fuzzy and state feedback controllers. All chapters include three types of exercises constructed to: Review the concepts discussed in the chapter, allow the reader to apply the newly acquired techniques and subject related facts on simple problems, and indicate directions for open ended theses projects. Appendices on Optimal Control and Fuzzy Control meant as refreshers on those control engineering techniques used throughout the book are also included.

This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the subject of control engineering. Both continuous- and discrete-time control systems are treated, although the emphasis is on continuous-time systems. A chapter each is devoted to in-depth analysis of non-linear control systems, control system components, and optimal control theory. The book also introduces students to the modern concepts of neural fuzzy and adaptive learning systems.

Dynamics systems (living organisms, electromechanical and industrial systems, chemical and technological processes, market and ecology, and so forth) can be considered and analyzed using information and systems theories. For example, adaptive human behavior can be studied using automatic feedback control. As an illustrative example, the driver controls a car changing the speed and steer ing wheels using incoming information, such as traffic and road conditions. This book focuses on the most important and manageable topics in applied multivariable control with application to a wide class of electromechanical dynamic systems. A large spectrum of systems, familiar to electrical, mechanical, and aerospace stu dents, engineers, and scholars, are thoroughly studied to build the bridge between theory and practice as well as to illustrate the practical application of control theory through illustrative examples. It is the author's goal to write a book that can be used to teach undergraduate and graduate classes in automatic control and nonlin ear control at electrical, mechanical, and aerospace engineering departments. The book is also addressed to engineers and scholars, and the examples considered allow one to implement the theory in a great variety of industrial systems. The main purpose of this book is to help the reader grasp the nature and significance of multivariable control.
