Using the power of MATLAB® and its Control System Toolbox, this book is the ideal supplement for a digital control systems course. Students are able to use a digital computer to rapidly work a wide range of numerical problems and gain deeper insight in control design. The book is built around illustrative examples that demonstrate the steps involved in the analysis and design process. The examples are followed by a variety of problems that span the spectrum from follow-up what-if problems, to simple textbook-type reinforcement problems, to open-ended exploratory problems, and to realistic comprehensive problems. This book is part of the Brooks/Cole Bookware Companion Series.Chow, Joe H. is the author of 'Discrete Time Control Problems Using Matlab and the Control System Toolbox', published 2002 under ISBN 9780534384777 and ISBN 0534384773.
