Essence of the Root Locus Technique
In this chapter we study a method for nding locations of system poles. The method is presented for a very general set-up, namely for the case when the closed-loop system poles are functions of an unknown parameter. In m

Time Domain Controller Design
8.1 Introduction
In this chapter we study the problem of controller design such that the desired system specications are achieved. Controller design is performed in the time domain using the root locus technique

Frequency Domain Controller Design
9.1 Introduction
Frequency domain techniques together with the root locus method have been very popular classical methods for both analysis and design of control systems. As they are still used extensively i

Controllability and Observability
Controllability and observability represent two major concepts of modern control system theory. These originally theoretical concepts, introduced by R. Kalman in 1960, are particularly important for practical

Control System Theory Overview
In this book we have presented results mostly for continuous-time, time-invariant, deterministic control systems. We have also, to some extent, given the corresponding results for discrete-time, time-invariant, d
