Linear Control Systems Engineering by Morris Driels: A Modular Approach to Learning Control Theory

Linear Control Systems Engineering is a textbook written by Morris Driels, a professor of mechanical engineering at the United States Naval Academy. The book covers all the classic topics in control theory, such as system classification, time domain response, frequency response, stability and controller design. The book also provides examples of commonly used software tools for control system analysis and design, such as MATLAB and SIMULINK.

What makes this book unique is its modular format, which divides the material into a large number of modules, each corresponding to one or two lectures. Each module has several worked examples and homework problems for student self-assessment. This allows the instructor to customize the course content and sequence according to the needs and interests of the students. The book also includes several comprehensive control system design problems that integrate the concepts learned throughout the book.

Linear Control Systems Engineering is suitable for undergraduate and graduate courses in control engineering, as well as for self-study by engineers and researchers who want to learn or refresh their knowledge of control theory. The book assumes a basic background in differential equations, linear algebra and Laplace transforms. The book is available in hardcover format from McGraw-Hill[^2^], and has received positive reviews from readers on Goodreads[^1^] [^3^].Control systems are widely used in engineering and technology to manage the behavior of various devices or systems. Control systems can be classified into different types based on several criteria, such as the type of input and output signals, the number of inputs and outputs, the presence or absence of feedback, and the linearity or nonlinearity of the system.

Some examples of control systems are:

Traffic lights control system: This is an example of an open-loop control system, where the output (the sequence of lights) is not affected by the feedback (the traffic conditions). The input is a predetermined timing sequence that controls the switching of lights.

Washing machine: This is an example of a closed-loop control system, where the output (the water level or temperature) is monitored by sensors and fed back to the input (the valves or heaters). The input is adjusted based on the feedback to maintain the desired output.

Air conditioner: This is an example of a linear control system, where the output (the room temperature) is proportional to the input (the cooling power). The input is regulated by a feedback controller that compares the output with a setpoint (the desired temperature) and generates an error signal that drives the input.

Fuzzy logic controller: This is an example of a nonlinear control system, where the output (the control action) is not a simple function of the input (the measured variables). The input is processed by a fuzzy logic algorithm that uses linguistic rules and fuzzy sets to infer the output. aa16f39245
