Book description
The book has been designed to cover the complete syllabi of Control Systems taught during various engineering courses at the undergraduate level. It would also help students appearing for competitive examinations like GATE, IAS, IES, NTPC and NHPC. The topics are explained in a simple and lucid manner, with the help of extended derivations accompanied by an exhaustive number of new figures, illustrations and solved examples. Practical applications along with the explanation of key concepts are included.Table of contents
