A controls book that places special emphasis on mechatronics. It provides readers coverage of modern design tools and examples. It helps engineers to understand control systems with the help of modern examples and exercises.
"Automatic Control Systems" provides engineers with a fresh new controls book that places special emphasis on mechatronics. It follows a revolutionary approach by actually including a physical lab. In addition, readers will find authoritative coverage of modern design tools and examples. Current mechatronics applications build motivation to learn the material. Extensive use of virtual lab software is also integrated throughout the chapters. Engineers will gain a strong understand of control systems with the help of modern examples and exercises.
