This book presents a collection of exercises on dynamical systems, modelling and control for university students in the areas of engineering, applied, mathematics, biomathematics and physics. It includes solved problems on fractional calculus and simple tools for nonlinear systems which are not found in any similar book.
Topics covered include;
- Block diagram algebra and system transfer functions
- Mathematical models
- Analysis of continuous systems in the time domain
- Root locus analysis
- Frequency domain analysis
- PID controller synthesis
- State space analysis of continuous systems
- Controller synthesis by pole placement
- Analysis of non-linear systems with the describing function method
- Analysis of nonlinear systems with the phase plane method
- Fractional order systems and controllers
