qControl Systems Technologyq is a comprehensive text focused on the knowledge required by practitioners to both understand and evaluate an existing control system. The text also enables readers to devise and design new control system applications. The text presents classical and digital control systems, emphasizing careful explanations of the concepts. Multiple examples and solutions illustrate the concepts and the operations required to solve problems. The use of computers to implement practical solutions to problems is also emphasized throughout the book. Topics covered include: qIntroduction to Control Systemsq qLaplace Transformsq qConstrol System Modelsq qFrequency Response Analysisq qState Space Analysisq qIntroduction to Digital Control Systemsq qDiscrete Control Systemsq Each chapter starts with an introductory section that explains the purpose of that chapter. There is also a summary that contains important points presented within the chapter. A set of review questions reinforces learning. Appendices on complex numbers and matrices will prove to be helpful and informative to readers, and solutions to select odd-numbered problems help readers assure themselves that they have a firm grasp on the subject matter.It is possible to derive the system transfer function for the case of a canonical block diagram, shown in figure 4.14. The characteristic equation of this system transfer function is found by setting the denominator equal to zero. The poles of the system are found as the roots of that equation. As noted earlier, these poles determine the time response of the system and its stability. . Block diagram reduction techniques can be used to reduce complex system block diagrams to the canonicalanbsp;...
