Control Engineering is the field in which control theory is applied to design systems to produce desirable outputs. It essays the role of an incubator of emerging technologies. It has very broad applications ranging from automobiles, aircrafts to home appliances, process plants, etc. This subject gains importance due to its multidisciplinary nature, and thus establishes itself as a core course among all engineering curricula.
This textbook aims to develop knowledge and understanding of the principles of physical control system modeling, system design and analysis. Though the treatment of the subject is from a mechanical engineering point of view, this book covers the syllabus prescribed by various universities in India for aerospace, automobile, industrial, chemical, electrical and electronics engineering disciplines at undergraduate level.
