This well-respected work discusses the use of digital computers in the real-time control of dynamic systems. The emphasis is on the design of digital controls that achieve good dynamic response and small errors while using signals that are sampled in time and quantized in amplitude. Both classical and modern control methods are described and applied to illustrative examples. The strengths and limitations of each method are explored to help the reader develop satisfactory designs with the least effort.Two new chapters have been added to the third edition offering a review of feedback control systems and an overview of digital control systems. MATLAB statements and problems have been more thoroughly and carefully integrated throughout the book to offer readers a more complete design picture. The new edition contains up-to-date material on state-space design and twice as many end-of-chapter problems.

This third edition provides chemical engineers with process control techniques that are used in practice while offering detailed mathematical analysis. Numerous examples and simulations are used to illustrate key theoretical concepts. New exercises are integrated throughout several chapters to reinforce concepts. Up-to-date information is also included on real-time optimization and model predictive control to highlight the significant impact these techniques have on industrial practice. And chemical engineers will find two new chapters on biosystems control to gain the latest perspective in the field.

Digital control systems are becoming increasingly prevalent and important within industry. In recent years significant progress has been made in their analysis and design – particularly within the areas of microprocessors and digital signal processors. The traditional approach to teaching digital control assumes an understanding of analog control theory; Digital Control, however, teaches the fundamentals of the topics, assuming no prior knowledge of control engineering. Organised into five sections, it discusses modelling, signal processing and identification of plants from measurements, as well as the transfer function approach to, and state space techniques for, control design. Teaches the fundamentals of digital control, enabling the student to exploit the complete potential of digital systems. Presents a number of control techniques including proportional-integral-derivative (PID), pole placement, internal model, minimum variance, model predictive and linear quadratic Gaussian control and their extensions. Provides an extensive introduction to digital signal processing, an essential component to the understanding and implementation of digital controllers; and to the identification of plant models, an important topic in this information era. Includes examples, problems and solutions as well as accompanying MatLAB code. Digital Control offers an advanced and self-contained textbook to senior undergraduates and postgraduates in chemical, electrical and mechanical engineering and computer science. It will also appeal to practicing systems engineers who need to learn digital control.

This valuable reference provides a comprehensive treatment of the technology known as RMA (rate-monotonic analysis) method. It also covers the tremendous recent advances in real-time operating systems and communications networks—emphasizing research results that have been adopted in state-of-the-art systems. Describing how and discussing why, this book uses insightful illustrative examples to convey technology transition in the last ten years. Coverage includes commonly used approaches to hard real-time scheduling, clock-driven scheduling, scheduling aperiodic and sporadic jobs in priority-driven systems, resources and resource access control, real-time communications, and operating systems. For systems architects, designers, chief scientists and technologists, and systems analysts.
