Modeling, analysis and control of dynamic systems have interested engineers for a long time. Within recent years because of the ability to use high powered computers in calculations and design, need for more detailed models has become prevalent. New control systems are indispensable to the success of many businesses, particularly in optics, robotics, micro machines and precision engineering. This book presents comprehensive coverage dynamic systems, such as mechanical and electrical systems, as well as fluid and thermal systems.
