Computer-Aided Control Systems Design: Practical Applications Using MATLAB ® and Simulink ® supplies a solid foundation in applied control to help you bridge the gap between control theory and its real-world applications. Working from basic principles, the book delves into control systems design through the practical examples of the ALSTOM gasifier system in power stations and underwater robotic vehicles in the marine industry. It also shows how powerful software such as MATLAB ® and Simulink ® can aid in control systems design.

Make Control Engineering Come Alive with Computer-Aided Software

Emphasizing key aspects of the design process, the book covers the dynamic modeling, control structure design, controller design, implementation, and testing of control systems. It begins with the essential ideas of applied control engineering and a hands-on introduction to MATLAB and Simulink. It then discusses the analysis, model order reduction, and controller design for a power plant and the modeling, simulation, and control of a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for pipeline tracking. The author explains how to obtain the ROV model and verify it by using computational fluid dynamic software before designing and implementing the control system. In addition, the book details the nonlinear subsystem modeling and linearization of the ROV at vertical plane equilibrium points. Throughout, the author delineates areas for further study. Appendices provide additional information on various simulation models and their results.

-IEEE Control Systems Magazine, June 2014

"The unique feature of this book is its practical application of remotely operated vehicles and the ALSTOM gasifier, which gives insight into the mathematical procedures of MATLAB and Simulink as powerful simulation tools. ... This excellent book can be used as reference text for undergraduate or postgraduate students. ... it bridges the gap between academic theory and industrial applications. The examples are concise and yet easy to understand."
-Dr. Ivan CK Tam, Newcastle University, Singapore

"This book shows good practical examples on the coding used for control systems design, analysis, and implementations using MATLAB and Simulink."
-Rongxin Cui, Northwestern Polytechnical University, China

"This book, by providing examples in important applications for simulation-based experimentation and simulation-based experience in applied control engineering, is a valuable addition to the literature. It reflects where our knowledge is firm enough to provide mathematical description of systems as well as design, simulation, analysis and implementation of control systems. Areas where the knowledge is yet shallow are targeted for future studies. This book provides a fertile delineation of areas needing attention. It is written for those who may be already familiar with or newly exposed to the concepts associated with applied control engineering. It will be most useful for researchers, engineers, faculty, and students."
-From the Foreword by Dr. Tuncer OEren, University of Ottawa, Canada
