Frequency-Domain Control Design for High-Performance Systems
Frequency-Domain Control Design for High-Performance Systems serves as a practical guide for the control engineer, and attempts to bridge the gap between industrial and academic control theory. Frequency-domain techniques rooted in classical control theory are presented with new approaches in nonlinear compensation that result in robust, high-performance closed-loop systems. Illustrative examples using data from actual control designs are included.
