**Control Engineering: An introduction with the use of Matlab**

by Derek Atherton

**Publisher**: BookBoon 2009**ISBN-13**: 9788776814663**Number of pages**: 155

**Description**:

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.
