For senior or graduate-level students taking a first course in Control Theory (in departments of Mechanical, Electrical, Aerospace, and Chemical Engineering).
A comprehensive, senior-level textbook for control engineering.
Ogata’s Modern Control Engineering, 4/e , offers the comprehensive coverage of continuous-time control systems that all senior students must have, 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.
The author has also updated and revised many of the worked examples and end-of-chapter problems. This text is ideal for control systems engineers.
