Automatic Control Systems Tenth Edition Book Excerpt:

A complete toolkit for teaching, learning, and understanding the essential concepts of automatic control systems Edition after acclaimed edition, Automatic Control Systems has delivered up-to-date, real-world coverage designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of control systems. More than a comprehensive text, Automatic Control Systems includes innovative virtual labs that replicate physical systems and sharpen readers’ problem-solving skills. The Tenth Edition introduces the concept of Control Lab, which includes two classes of experiments: SIMLab (model-based simulation) and LEGOLab (physical experiments using LEGO® robots). These experiments are intended to supplement, or replace, the experimental exposure of the students in a traditional undergraduate control course and will allow these students to do their work within the MATLAB® and Simulink® environment—even at home. This cost-effective approach may allow educational institutions to equip their labs with a number of LEGO test beds and maximize student access to the equipment at a fraction of the cost of currently available control system experiments. Alternatively, as a supplemental learning tool, students can take the equipment home and learn at their own pace. This new edition continues a tradition of excellence with: • A greater number of solved examples • Online labs using both LEGO MINDSTORMS® and MATLAB/SIMLab • Enhancements to the easy-to-use MATLAB GUI software (ACSYS) to allow interface with LEGO MINDSTORMS • A valuable introduction to the concept of Control Lab • A logical organization, with Chapters 1 to 3 covering all background material and Chapters 4 to 11 presenting material directly related to the subject of control • 10 online appendices, including Elementary Matrix Theory and Algebra, Control Lab, Difference Equations, and Mathematical Foundation • A full-set of PowerPoint® slides and solutions available to instructors Adopted by hundreds of universities and translated into at least nine languages, Automatic Control Systems remains the single-best resource for students to gain a practical understanding of the subject and to prepare them for the challenges they will one day face. For practicing engineers, it represents a clear, thorough, and current self-study resource that they will turn to again and again throughout their career.

Automatic Control with Experiments Book Excerpt:

This textbook presents theory and practice in the context of automatic control education. It presents the relevant theory in the first eight chapters, applying them later on to the control of several real plants. Each plant is studied following a uniform procedure: a) the plant’s function is described, b) a mathematical model is obtained, c) plant construction is explained in such a way that the reader can build his or her own plant to conduct experiments, d) experiments are conducted to determine the plant’s parameters, e) a controller is designed using the theory discussed in the first eight chapters, f) practical controller implementation is performed in such a way that the reader can build the controller in practice, and g) the experimental results are presented. Moreover, the book provides a wealth of exercises and appendices reviewing the foundations of several concepts and techniques in automatic control. The control system construction proposed is based on inexpensive, easy-to-use hardware. An explicit procedure for obtaining formulas for the oscillation condition and the oscillation frequency of electronic oscillator circuits is demonstrated as well.

Variable Speed AC Drives with Inverter Output Filters Book Excerpt:

The advance of variable speed drives systems (VSDs) engineering highlights the need of specific technical guidance provision by electrical machines and drives manufacturers, so that such applications can be properly designed to present advantages in terms of both energy efficiency and expenditure. This book presents problems and solutions related to inverter-fed electrical motors. Practically orientated, the book describes the reasons, theory and analysis of those problems. Various solutions for individual problems are presented together with the complete design process, modelling and simulation examples with MATLAB/Simulink on the companion website. A key focus of Variable Speed AC Drives with Inverter Output Filters is to examine the state variables estimation and motor control structures which have to be modified according to the used solution (filter). In most control systems the structure and parameters are taken into account to make it possible for precise control of the motor. This methodology is able to include modifications and extensions depending on specific control and estimation structures. Highly accessible, this is an invaluable resource for practising R&D engineers in drive companies, power electronics & control engineers and manufacturers of electrical drives. Senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in electronics and control engineering will also find it of value.

Automatic Control in Aerospace 1992 Book Excerpt:

Space vehicles have become increasingly complex in recent years, and the number of missions has multiplied as a result of extending frontiers in the exploration of our planetary system and the universe beyond. The advancement of automatic control in aerospace reflects these developments. Key areas covered in these proceedings include: the size and complexity of spacecrafts and the increasingly stringent performance requirements to be fulfilled in a harsh and unpredictable environment; the merger of space vehicles and airplanes into space planes to launch and retrieve payloads by reusable winged vehicles; and the demand to increase space automation and autonomy to reduce human involvement as much as possible in manned, man-tended and unmanned missions. This volume covers not only the newly evolving key technologies but also the classical issues of guidance, navigation and control.

Coefficient Diagram Method for Control System Design Book Excerpt:

This book describes a new control design technique called Coefficient Diagram Method (CDM), whereby practical control engineers without deep control theories and mathematics background can design a good controller for their specific plants. In addition, control experts can solve some complicated design problems. Since the CDM was first introduced in 1998, it reveals from the literature that CDM has provided successful controller designs for a variety of practical control problems. In the last two decades, a great deal of research has been done on CDM, while a growing number of researchers want to learn and utilize the method. However, there has been no textbook to learn it systematically so far. This book is motivated by such a need. It is also suitable as a textbook or reference book for master programs in control engineering. ​
