MATLAB Control Systems Engineering

Book description

MATLAB is a high-level language and environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, you can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages, such as C/C++ or Java.

MATLAB Control Systems Engineering introduces you to the MATLAB language with practical hands-on instructions and results, allowing you to quickly achieve your goals. In addition to giving an introduction to the MATLAB environment and MATLAB programming, this book provides all the material needed to design and analyze control systems using MATLAB’s specialized Control Systems Toolbox. The Control Systems Toolbox offers an extensive range of tools for classical and modern control design. Using these tools you can create models of linear time-invariant systems in transfer function, zero-pole-gain or state space format. You can manipulate both discrete-time and continuous-time systems and convert between various representations. You can calculate and graph time response, frequency response and loci of roots. Other functions allow you to perform pole placement, optimal control and estimates. The Control System Toolbox is open and extendible, allowing you to create customized M-files to suit your specific applications.
