Systems and Control presents modelling, analysis, and control of dynamical systems. It acquaints students with the basics of dynamical system theory and also equips them with the tools necessary for control system design. It emphasizes design and demonstrates how dynamical system theory fits into practical applications. Classical methods and the techniques of post-modern control engineering are covered in a unified fashion, showing how the current tools of a control engineer supplement more classical tools.Broad in scope, Systems and Control shows the multidisciplinary role of dynamics and control. It presents neural networks, fuzzy systems, and genetic algorithms and provides a self-contained introduction to chaotic systems. The text employs Lyapunov's stability theory as a unifying medium for different types of dynamical systems, using it--with its variants --to analyze dynamical system models. Specifically, optimal, fuzzy, sliding mode, and chaotic controllers are all constructed with the aid of the Lyapunov method and its extensions. In addition, a class of neural networks is also analyzed using Lyapunov's method.Ideal for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses in systems and control, this text can also be used for introductory courses in non-linear systems and modern automatic control.Contents:Each chapter ends with Notes and Exercises.Preface1.

True Digital Control: Statistical Modelling andNon–Minimal State Space Designdevelops a true digitalcontrol design philosophy that encompasses data–basedmodel identification, through to control algorithm design,robustness evaluation and implementation. With a heritage from bothclassical and modern control system synthesis, this book issupported by detailed practical examples based on theauthors’ research into environmental, mechatronic and roboticsystems. Treatment of both statistical modelling and control designunder one cover is unusual and highlights the important connectionsbetween these disciplines. Starting from the ubiquitous proportional–integralcontroller, and with essential concepts such as pole assignmentintroduced using straightforward algebra and block diagrams, thisbook addresses the needs of those students, researchers andengineers, who would like to advance their knowledge of controltheory and practice into the state space domain; and academics whoare interested to learn more about non–minimal state variablefeedback control systems. Such non–minimal state feedback isutilised as a unifying framework for generalised digital controlsystem design. This approach provides a gentle learning curve, fromwhich potentially difficult topics, such as optimal, stochastic andmultivariable control, can be introduced and assimilated in aninteresting and straightforward manner. Key features: Covers both system identification and control systemdesign in a unified manner Includes practical design case studies and simulationexamples Considers recent research into time–variable andstate–dependent parameter modelling and control, essentialelements of adaptive and nonlinear control system design, and thedelta–operator (the discrete–time equivalent of thedifferential operator) systems Accompanied by a website hosting MATLAB examples True Digital Control: Statistical Modelling andNon–Minimal State Space Design is a comprehensive andpractical guide for students and professionals who wish to furthertheir knowledge in the areas of modern control and systemidentification.

An extensive revision of the author's highly successful text, this third edition of Linear System Theory and Design has been made more accessible to students from all related backgrounds. After introducing the fundamental properties of linear systems, the text discusses design using state equations and transfer functions. In state-space design, Lyapunov equations are used extensively to design state feedback and state estimators. In the discussion of transfer-function design, pole placement, model matching, and their applications in tracking and disturbance rejection are covered. Both one-and two-degree-of-freedom configurations are used. All designs can be accomplished by solving sets of linear algebraic equations. The two main objectives of the text are to: � use simple and efficient methods to develop results and design procedures � enable students to employ the results to carry out design All results in this new edition are developed for numerical computation and illustrated using MATLAB, with an emphasis on the ideas behind the computation and interpretation of results. This book develops all theorems and results in a logical way so that readers can gain an intuitive understanding of the theorems. This revised edition begins with the time-invariant case and extends through the time-varying case. It also starts with single-input single-output design and extends to multi-input multi-output design. Striking a balance between theory and applications, Linear System Theory and Design, 3/e, is ideal for use in advanced undergraduate/first-year graduate courses in linear systems and multivariable system design in electrical, mechanical, chemical, and aeronautical engineering departments. It assumes a working knowledge of linear algebra and the Laplace transform and an elementary knowledge of differential equations.

This text presents a comprehensive treatment of signal processing and linear systems suitable for juniors and seniors in electrical engineering. Based on B. P. Lathi's widely used book, Linear Systems and Signals, it features additional applications to communications, controls, and filtering as well as new chapters on analog and digital filters and digital signal processing. Lathi emphasizes the physical appreciation of concepts rather than the mere mathematical manipulation of symbols. Avoiding the tendency to treat engineering as a branch of applied mathematics, he uses mathematics to enhance physical and intuitive understanding of concepts, instead of employing it only to prove axiomatic theory. Theoretical results are supported by carefully chosen examples and analogies, allowing students to intuitively discover meaning for themselves.

Fundamentals of Space Systems was developed to satisfy two objectives: the first is to provide a text suitable for use in an advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate course in both space systems engineering and space system design. The second is to be a primer and reference book for space professionals wishing to broaden their capabilities to develop, manage the development, or operate space systems. The authors of the individual chapters are practicing engineers that have had extensive experience in developing sophisticated experimental and operational spacecraft systems in addition to having experience teaching the subject material. The text presents the fundamentals of all the subsystems of a spacecraft missions and includes illustrative examples drawn from actual experience to enhance the learning experience. It includes a chapter on each of the relevant major disciplines and subsystems including space systems engineering, space environment, astrodynamics, propulsion and flight mechanics, attitude determination and control, power systems, thermal control, configuration management and structures, communications, command and telemetry, data processing, embedded flight software, survuvability and reliability, integration and test, mission operations, and the initial conceptual design of a typical small spacecraft mission.

Building on Gene Hosetter's lucid and highly-praised writing style, almost a third of the material in this Second Edition has been added since the lsat edition, bringing Dr. Hosetetter's classic text in to the present as a state-of-the-art, completely up-to-date, design-oriented digital control systems text. It begins with an overview of classical digital system control design, and develops the principles of regulation, tracking, Kalman filtering, and stochastic control. The stronger emphasis on design also satisfies ABET recommendations for Electrical Engineering curricula. The approach favors applied relevance over the abstract, while still exploring new ideas. Design examples are given throughout each chapter, with at least one major practical problem explained and solved.

Run-to-run (R2R) control is cutting-edge technology that allows modification of a product recipe between machine "runs," thereby minimizing process drift, shift, and variability-and with them, costs. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated in a variety of processes, such as vapor phase epitaxy, lithography, and chemical mechanical planarization. The only barrier to the semiconductor industry's widespread adoption of this highly effective process control is a lack of understanding of the technology. Run to Run Control in Semiconductor Manufacturing overcomes that barrier by offering in-depth analyses of R2R control.

In recent years significant progress has been made in the analysis and design of discrete-data and digital control systems. These systems have gained popularity and importance in industry due in part to the advances made in digital computers for controls and, more recently, in microprocessors and digital signal processors. An introductory text for a senior or graduate course on digital control systems, this text covers the theory and applications of digital control systems, assuming a knowledge of matrix algebra, differential equations, Laplace transforms and the basic principles of continuous-data control systems. Many subjects are new to the Second Edition, most importantly design topics such as disturbance rejection, sensitivity considerations, and zero-ripple deadbeat-response design. In addition, Kuo includes separate discussions on controllability, observability, and stability, expands the discussions of sampling period selection, emphasizes computer-aided solutions, and provides a new and simpler approach to the Nyquist criterion of stability. Each chapter begins with keywords and topics that provide students with an overview of the key topics to be covered. Illustrative examples, many derived from practical systems, are included throughout the text. Numerous exercise problems end each chapter.
