About this book

This book offers a compact introduction to modern linear control design.  The simplified overview presented of linear time-domain methodology paves the road for the study of more advanced non-linear techniques. Only rudimentary knowledge of linear systems theory is assumed - no use of Laplace transforms or frequency design tools is required. Emphasis is placed on assumptions and logical implications, rather than abstract completeness; on interpretation and physical meaning, rather than theoretical formalism; on results and solutions, rather than derivation or solvability.  The topics covered include transient performance and stabilization via state or output feedback; disturbance attenuation and robust control; regional eigenvalue assignment and constraints on input or output variables; asymptotic regulation and disturbance rejection. Lyapunov theory and Linear Matrix Inequalities (LMI) are discussed as key design methods. All methods are demonstrated with MATLAB to promote practical use and comprehension.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This small (110 page) volume provides ‘compact and practical introduction to modern linear control design’ in time domain for various types of system … . A nice attractive feature of this book is the set of examples with solutions … . The book is aimed at the entry level graduate students and other professional in the field of control systems engineering. This volume is a welcome addition to a number of books in the field.” (D. Subbaram Naidu, Amazon.com, April, 2014)

“This is another interesting book on control theory which primarily is a textbook for students and a manual for scientists specializing in the field of control design. … The advantages of the book should be the simplicity and clarity of presentation, as well as illustration of numerical examples for all discussed topics.” (Denis Khusainov, zbMATH, Vol. 1287, 2014)
