"A good effort, but needs to be cleaned up." according to Israel Vaughn. This book has a lot of errors.For example, on page 18-19 there is a proof of the generalized complex differentiation identity for the Z-transform. Both the form and the proof are incorrect. For example, if we set m=2 and compute (-z)^2 d/dz[d/dzF(z)], that is two derivatives of F(z), we get the Z-transform of k(k+1)f[k], not k^2f[k].
Digital controllers are part of nearly all modern personal, industrial, and transportation systems. This new text covers the fundamental principles and applications of digital control engineering, with emphasis on engineering design. Mathematics is used to help explain concepts, but throughout the text discussion is tied to design and implementation. With worked examples and Matlab applications in every chapter and many end-of-chapter assignments, this text provides both theory and practice for those coming to digital control engineering for the first time, whether as a student or practicing engineer.Extensive Use of computational tools: Matlab sections at end of each chapter show how to implement concepts from the chapterFrees the student from the drudgery of mundane calculations and allows him to consider more subtle aspects of control system analysis and designAn engineering approach to digital controls: emphasis throughout the book is on design of control systems. Every senior or graduate student of electrical, chemical or mechanical engineering should therefore be familiar with the basic theory of digital controllers. Some texts on digital control require more. For example coverage of analog controls in chapter 5 is not simply a review, but is used to show how analog control systems map to digital cont
