Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Ogata'sModern Control Engineering, 5/eoffers comprehensive coverage of control engineering, including frequency response approach, root-locus approach, and state-space approach to analysis and design of control systems. The text provides a gradual development of control theory, shows how to solve all computational problems with MATLAB, and avoids highly mathematical arguments. A wealth of examples and worked problems are featured throughout the text.
Laplace transform; mathematical modeling of mechanical systems, electrical systems, fluid systems, and thermal systems; transient and steady-state-response analyses, root-locus analysis and control systems design by the root-locus method; frequency-response analysis and control systems design by the frequency-response; two-degrees-of-freedom control; state space analysis of control systems and design of control systems in state space. he new edition includes improved coverage of Root-Locus Analysis (Chapter 6) and Frequency-Response Analysis (Chapter 8). The author has also updated and revised many of the worked examples and end-of-chapter problems.

MARKET: For control systems engineers.

About the Author

It did not make much sense in parts, and over all was very difficult to read.

The book also shows you matlab code in examples which is nice so you dont have to spend hours trying to figure out exactly how the codes work.

Unfortunately after I purchased it, I found out that it will not work with my windows 8 tablet kindle app, or my kindle paperwhite.

Strangely, of the numerous textbooks on control systems I own, just one of them sticks out. I've got many of the major ones, in particular Kuo 9e, Ogata 5e, Franklin 5e, Dorf/Bishop, and Nise 5e. Franklin is worst -- rambling, unstructured, Ogata is almost as bad -- poor English, loose, unmotivated advice with a handbook feel to it, and Kuo ranks between so-so and decent -- I suspect it was better organized in the older revisons. Dorf I've not used as much (my feeling is it's partly all right). On the other hand, Nise: Of the 60 or so textbooks on electrical and mechanincal engineering I have, Nise is top three and probably at the very top. Its language and stuctured organization is superb. Ogata as well as the others mentioned have an excellent command of their material, but their presentations are inadequate. I just wanted to let you know that there is an exception that serves up in both departments.

This is my favorite controls book. It might not be the best but it is very good. My dynamic systems and vibrations book was horrible and this book covered that whole book better. Shows good examples too and has lots of them, almost like a solution manual. The book also shows you matlab code in examples which is nice so you dont have to spend hours trying to figure out exactly how the codes work. Very good book.

Ogata is, in my opinion the best control system book out there, at this level - from there you can go to Bryson and Ho's book, which contains all there is to know about optimal control. A water down version of Bryson is Lewis (from G-tech) but it is still good. Ogata will prepare your for both - the only problem I found with Ogata is that the version I was taught from, did not have physical examples translated to differential equations, then to the frequency domain. That is it did not show you how the "plant" that needs to be controlled was formed - granted it is not a modeling book; if would help if a physical example was translated to the transfer function. The new book, hopefully translates physical realization to transfer functions from first principles. I had to take a course in the chemical engineering department who model chemical tanks, as stages of first order systems, and show applications of flow or heat control. It was here that I started to put a physical connection to the control plant. Being a EE all we get taught is math in control systems, the ME and ChemE Folks have a much better presentation of the material as it pertains to engineering application. Ogata will teach you the math - which if you have taken undergraduate complex analysis will seem cake to you; but the application s are very cool. Try to keep a physical realization in mind when you start deriving stability plots in the root locus domain. It will help.

Format: Hardcover
This may not be the best book for a first undergraduate course in control, but is surely the most comprehensive. I used this book as a reference to supplement the book by Norman Nise and enjoyed solving the problems as the exercises in Nise were pretty straightforward. The book also provides MATLAB code to various problems. The treatment of the root locus and the frequency response is top notch. Controller design also has been discussed in a chapter. The chapter on PID controller tuning and various tuning algorithms is useful to know, though it may not be covered in a first course. All in all, a very good book to have.

This was the textbook for my controls class in college. Its a good book with a lot of information but I found some explanations complicated. I had to research some things online to get better explanations.

This book was required for a controls class (undergrad mechanical engineering) and suited the course very well.

ADVANTAGES:
A lot of examples with detailed step-by-step solving shown.
Different types of examples (Hand-calculations/MATLAB) of varying difficulties.
Very dense material.

DISADVANTAGES:
Very very dense.

If you want to learn the material you're going to need to read the book like a novel. It's very dense and concise so it's difficult but once you get to reading all that's in it is very useful.

Shipping was very quick and the book was in perfect condition.
