This compact and original reference and textbook presents the most important classical and modern essentials of control engineering in a single volume. It constitutes a harmonic mixture of control theory and applications, which makes the book especially useful for students, practicing engineers and researchers interested in modeling and control of processes. Well written and easily understandable, it includes a range of methods for the analysis and design of control systems.Process. Control. The history of automatic control began about 1788. At that time J. Watt developed a revolution controller for ... He showed that the linear- quadratic control problem may be reduced to a solution of the Riccati equation. ... Before 1940, processes in the chemical industry and in industries with similar processes, were controlled practically only manually. ... The seventies brought the demands on higher quality of control systems and integrated process and control design.
