Control Engineering "An Introductory Course" is aimed at second or third year courses in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, and provides for the needs of these courses without being over-burdened with detail.The authors work in one of the foremost centres in Europe for Control Engineering, and bring both teaching and practical consultancy experience to the text, which links theoretical approaches to actual case histories. Including an introduction to the software tools of MATLAB and SIMULINK, this book also includes simulations and examples throughout, and will give a straightforward and no-nonsense introduction to Control Engineering for students, and those wishing to refresh their knowledge.
