This text ventures into areas that the majority of control system books avoid. It was written to look at the area in a much broader form than the usual process control or machine control systems. Many topics that are covered in other specialties are covered, such as the stability of amplifiers, phase-locked loops, structural resonance, and parasitic oscillations. It also covers the application and implementation of real-time digital controllers and, for the first time, the amplitude-locked loop. An even wider look at the area is shown by examining classical or historic mathematical algorithms in terms of control theory. Despite its wide range, the book is tutorial in nature and tries to avoid, where possible, an obtuse mathematical approach. It comes with MATLAB, LabView, and a few mathematical examples. The book is an ideal undergraduate text for engineers and a refresher for many practicing engineers. It gives a thorough background in the analog domain before moving on to digital control and its applications. The proceeds from author royalties on this book will be donated to charity.
