An introductory text on control systems, based on the senior-level control-system course taught by the author at the U. of Illinois at Urbana for over 30 years. This edition is expanded to a total of 11 chapters and three appendices. Great emphasis is placed on the design of control systems and computer solutions. Many systems, such as the sun-seeker system, liquid-level control, dc-motor control, space- vehicle payload control, and others, are carried out as numerical examples from analysis to design. Prerequisite are the subjects found in a typical linear-system course. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
