This book presents practical techniques of discrete-time control system design. In general, the design techniques lead to low-order dynamic compensators that ensure satisfactory closed-loop performance for a wide range of sampling rates. The theory is given in the form of theorems, lemmas, and propositions. The design of the control systems is presented as step-by-step procedures and algorithms. The proposed feedback control schemes are applied to well-known dynamic system models.

This book also discusses:

Closed-loop performance of generic models of mobile robot and airborne pursuer dynamic systems under discrete-time feedback control with limited computing capabilities

Concepts of discrete-time models and sampled-data models of continuous-time systems, for both single- and dual-rate operation

Local versus global digital redesign

Optimal, closed-loop digital redesign methods

Plant input mapping design

Generalized holds and samplers for use in feedback control loops,

Numerical simulation of fixed-point arithmetic implementation

Flatness-based discrete-time control

The effect of the sampling or control update rate on closed-loop performance

Delta and shift operators
