About this book


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.

"This well-written book treats modern concepts of control systems theory to provide an accessible text for the most important aspects in linear and nonlinear multivariable systems. The author presents a well-defined theoretical base with step-by-step instructions on how to apply [them] by thoroughly studying a great number of practical real-world problems and using numerous examples…. A vast range of worked-out examples and qualitative illustrations is included…. The book…is an exceptionally complete and accessible text/reference for graduates and professionals in automatic control and nonlinear control." —Publicationes Mathematicae, Debrecen


"This book presents a foundation of modern control systems theory. It is well known that dynamical systems like living organisms, electromechanical and industrial systems, chemical and technological processes, market and ecology can be considered and analyzed using systems theory. The advent of computers has caused rapid strides in the area of control design and these circumstances are reflected in this book. For example software like MATLAB and SIMULINK are widely used here...[and] permits the investigator to formulate and solve the increasingly complex problems of control design…. This book may be very useful for students, postgraduate students, engineers and scientists who are studying and designing controlled dynamical systems." —Zentralblatt Math
