Modern control systems analysis and design using MATLAB and SIMULINK


Modern control systems analysis and design using MATLAB and SIMULINK



This supplement includes ways to integrate more of the design process into their undergraduate controls course as well as improve their students' computer skills. In each chapter, a problem from the Modern Control Systems textbook has been changed into a design problem and various aspects of the design process are explored.
