This book covers the theory and mathematics needed to understand the concepts in control system design. Chapter 1 deals with compensation network design. Nonlinear control systems, including phase-plane analysis and the Delta method are presented in chapter 2. The analysis and design aspects based on the state variable approach are presented in Chapter 3. The discrete time control systems form the basis for the study of digital control systems in Chapter 4, covering the frequency response, root locus analysis, and stability considerations for discrete-time control systems. The stability analysis based on the Lyapunov method is given in chapter 5. The appendices include two US government articles on industrial control systems (NIST) and the control system design for a solar energy storage system (U.S. Dept. of Energy). Concepts in the text are supported by numerical examples.
