Modern Control: State-Space Analysis And Design Methods

by Arie Nakhmani

This concise textbook (less than 200 pages) offers hands-on coverage of modern control system engineering while showing the best strategies for solving complex problems, providing self-evaluation questions, and step-by-step analysis and design procedures.   Modern Control: State-Space Analysis and Design Methods book features start-to-finish design projects as well as online snippets of MATLAB code with simulations. The essential mathematics is presented along with fully worked-out examples in gradually increasing degrees of difficulty. Readers will receive a “just-in-time” math background from a comprehensive appendix and get step-by-step descriptions of the latest analysis and design techniques.

MATLAB code is available here: CODE.ZIP

Coverage includes:

  • An introduction to control systems
  • State-space representations
  • Pole placement via state feedback
  • State estimators (observers)
  • Non-minimal canonical forms
  • Linearization
  • Lyapunov stability
  • Linear quadratic regulators (LQR)
  • Symmetric root locus (SRL)
  • Kalman filter
  • Linear quadratic gaussian control (LQG)
