Control Engineering: An introduction with the use of Matlab
by Derek Atherton
Publisher: BookBoon 2009
Number of pages: 155
The book covers the basic aspects of linear single loop feedback control theory. Explanations of the mathematical concepts used in classical control such as root loci, frequency response and stability methods are explained by making use of MATLAB plots but omitting the detailed mathematics found in many textbooks. There is a chapter on PID control and two chapters provide brief coverage of state variable methods.

The authors reduce a wide variety of problems arising in system and control theory to a handful of optimization problems that involve linear matrix inequalities. These problems can be solved using recently developed numerical algorithms.

Several streams of nonlinear control theory are directed towards a constructive solution of the feedback stabilization problem. Analytic, geometric and asymptotic concepts are assembled as design tools for a wide variety of nonlinear phenomena.

This book discusses the issues of adaptive control application to model generation, adaptive estimation, output regulation and feedback, electrical drives, optical communication, neural estimator, simulation and implementation.

The lectures present an introduction to modern control theory. Calculus of variations is used to study the problem of determining the optimal control for a deterministic system without constraints and for one with constraints.
