Introduction to Modern Controls

Introduction to Modern Controls

with Illustrations in MATLAB and Python

ByXu ChenMasayoshi Tomizuka

“Introduction to Modern Controls“ uses modern computing tools such as MATLAB and Python to teach modern control systems. You will learn how to use statespace methods to make, study, and control dynamic systems. You will explore topics like state-space models and solutions, stability, controllability, observability, state-feedback control, optimal control, observers, observer state feedback controls, least square estimation, Kalman filter, and Linear Quadratic Gaussian optimal control. You will see how these topics work in both continuous- and discrete-time settings. Substantial example codes, figures, and illustrations on physical systems supplement your learning. This book is supported by a suite of online resources including source code, lecture slides, lecture recordings, and exercises at the end of each chapter.
