Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

A direct approach to control system design.

Modern Control Design - with MATLAB and SIMULINKoffers a straightforward treatment of control system theory and applications. It is a unique amalgam of classical and state-space design techniques, with MATLAB/SIMULINK examples interwoven with the text. Contemporary engineering control systems of various kinds are covered in a clear and concise manner, and the book is written with enthusiasm in an inspiring style. The overall result is a mathematically rigorous coverage of essential topics, without undue formal drudgery, or excessive theoretical detail. The material is arranged in such a way that concepts evolve in a logical manner, whereby appropriate techniques fit like a glove.

A broad spectrum of topics ranging from classical control to optimal, robust, digital, and nonlinear control are included. Advanced topics such as H-infinity design and -synthesis also feature in this comprehensive textbook. Whereas other controls engineering textbooks are inclined to dwell more on the evaluation of controls formulae and rules of application, this book emphasizes 'in-line' execution of control techniques to non-trivial application problems through MATLAB, in order to produce, visualize and investigate results. This hands-on scheme of learning is effective in grasping and appreciating controls concepts.

A number of exercises are found at the end of the chapters, with numerical answers provided to some exercises. Numerous design examples from all engineering disciplines, along with the author's simple approach in explaining theoretical concepts, make this book an ideal text for students, as well as a valuable professional reference.
* Not just another MATLAB book, because it lends intimate acquaintance with the "why" and "what" of control concepts, and the underlying theory.

* Easily read and understood.

* MATLAB/SIMULINK examples clear, concise, and directly integrated into the text.

* Students learn to use MATLAB/SIMULINK as tools (not as black boxes).

* Comprehensive coverage of topics, from classical control to optimal, robust, state-space control.

I found this book by chance in the library in our company. I'd studied aerospace engineering and specialised in flight control about 7 years earlier, and this book was perfect for me. It provided a refresher of the basics, and was a good introduction to the more advanced concepts like LQR, H-infinity control, etc., as well as helping me dust off my Matlab skills. But it might not be the best book for newcomers to the subject - but it does complement other books (like Ogata, Stevens and Lewis) very well.

I loved the book.

Great explanations.

Not a complete first book in controls though. It helps to have a little more background or have read one of the standard control's texts.

It's a really good text especially for the examples and integrated Matlab code. The language is extremely simple and the context will surely help you to understand the practice. The part about the pole placement design and optimal control is quite good.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Pascal Nespeca on November 1, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book isn't horrible, it is just that one probably will not actually learn much valuable information about control design from this book. If one wants a quick reference for MATLAB subroutines or optimal control proofs, then this is a good book. Otherwise, I cannot think of a good use for this book. Many important subjects are not discussed, such as performance limitations or transmission zeros.

There are other books which provide better insight into control design that have just as much MATLAB support. Books by Sigurd Skogestad and Graham Goodwin on control design are much better and have MATLAB codes. For those interested in optimal control (which is usually synonymous with modern control), books written by Robert Stengel and Brian Anderson are some good and cheap texts.

I bought several books in control. This is the best one. I strongly recommend it for entry level readers. It would be much better if this book gives more real word examples.
