  • Provides clear exposition of the basic principles of control system design techniques using frequency and time-domain methods including robust control design and an introduction to digital control systems.
  • Offers an integrated design and analysis approach to real-world engineering problems.
  • Incorporates computer-aided design and analysis using MATLAB and SIMULINK throughout the text and end-of-chapter examples and problems.
  • Reinforces the development of problem-solving skills with five levels of end-of-chapter problems.
  • Incorporates a Sequential Design Problem feature, using a disk drive read system as the example, to highlight the main themes in each chapter and how they impact the design of a control system.
  • Presents a Continuous Design Problem feature which gives students the opportunity to apply the tools and techniques presented in each chapter to a design example carried throughout the text.
  • Offers a supplement, which emphasizes modeling and the design process using MATLAB and SIMULINK.


  • Introduces the use of SIMULINK, a valuable tool for control system simulation, including an appendix, which explains the basics.
  • MATLAB Updated.
  • New Companion Website for professors and students, including the latest MATLAB m-files, practice exams, student exercises with instant grading and other study aids. Website is updated regularly.
