Modern Control Engineering

Fifth Edition

Katsuhiko Ogata

This book introduces important concepts in the analysis and design of control systems

Readers will find it to be a clear and understandable textbook for control system courses

at colleges and universities. It is written for senior electrical, mechanical, aerospace, or

chemical engineering students. The reader is expected to have fulfilled the following

prerequisites: introductory courses on differential equations, Laplace transforms, vectormatrix

analysis, circuit analysis, mechanics, and introductory thermodynamics

The main revisions made in this edition are as follows

The use of MATLAB for obtaining responses of control systems to various inputs-

has been increased.

The usefulness of the computational optimization approach with MATLAB has been-

demonstrated

New example problems have been added throughout the book-

Materials in the previous edition that are of secondary importance have been deleted-

in order to provide space for more important subjects. Signal flow graphs were

dropped from the book. A chapter on Laplace transform was deleted. Instead

Laplace transform tables, and partial-fraction expansion with MATLAB are presented-

in Appendix A and Appendix B, respectively

A short summary of vector-matrix analysis is presented in Appendix C; this will help-

the reader to find the inverses of n x n matrices that may be involved in the analysis

and design of control systems
