Digital Control Systems Analysis and Design is appropriate for a one semester/two-quarter senior-level course in digital or discrete-time controls. It is also a suitable reference for practicing engineers.

This best-selling text places emphasis on the practical aspects of designing and implementing digital control systems.

This program presents a better teaching and learning experience—for you and your students.

  • Provide MATLAB programs to students: Short MATLAB programs have been included in many of the examples, which allow students to experiment and learn more skills.
  • Motivate students with running applications that are featured throughout the book: Simple physical systems are introduced in one chapter and then used again later to illuminate more advanced material.
  • Reinforce core concepts with examples and problems: Numerous problems and worked examples help students grasp the text’s concepts.
  • Keep your course current: A new chapter on system identification (Chapter 11) is included in this edition
