Dedicated this book
‘To Lord Sri Venkateswara’
Control Systems Engineering is an exciting and challenging field and is a
multidisciplinary subject. This book is designed and organized around the concepts of control
systems engineering using MATLAB, as they have been developed in the frequency and time
domain for an introductory undergraduate or graduate course in control systems for engineer-
ing students of all disciplines.
Chapter 1 presents a brief introduction to control systems. The fundamental strategy of
controlling physical variables in systems is presented. Some of the terms commonly used to
describe the operation, analysis, and design of control systems are described.
An introduction to MATLAB basics is presented in Chapter 2. Chapter 2 also presents
MATLAB commands. MATLAB is considered as the software of choice. MATLAB can be used
interactively and has an inventory of routines, called as functions, which minimize the task of
programming even more. Further information on MATLAB can be obtained from: The
MathWorks, Inc., 3 Apple Hill Drive, Natick, MA 01760. In the computational aspects, MATLAB
has emerged as a very powerful tool for numerical computations involved in control systems
engineering. The idea of computer-aided design and analysis using MATLAB with the Symbolic
Math Tool box, and the C
