An exciting new text for the advanced controls course, Control Engineering: A Modern Approach breaks with tradition by introducing a number of new topics--robust controls, for example--and omitting a number of topics dated by the use of digital computers. Bélanger gives the student a real introduction to control engineering because he covers material at the introductory level that is truly new and up-to-date. Introductory controls students in electrical, mechanical, and aeronautical engineering benefit from the text's practical emphasis on modeling and simulation supported by recurring case examples and problems. This approach--used only in Control Engineering: A Modern Approach--gives the student a much deeper physical insight into observable and controllable models. The text is designed to be used with MATLAB software, and refers extensively to it throughout, emphasizing the computer as a regular and indispensable tool of the successful control engineer.
