Developed from the author’s academic and industrial experiences, Modeling and Control of Engineering Systems provides a unified treatment of the modeling of mechanical, electrical, fluid, and intelligent control, instrumentation, experimentation, and design. It includes theory, analytical techniques, popular computer tools, simulation details, and applications.

Overcoming the deficiencies of other modeling and control books, this text relates the model to the physical system and addresses why a particular control techniques is suitable for controlling the system. Although MATLAB, Simulink, and LabVIEW are used, the author fully explains the fundamentals and analytical basis behind the methods, the choice of proper tools to analyze a given problem, the ways to interpret and validate the results, and the limitations of the software tools.
