Modeling and Analysis of Dynamic Systems – C. Close, D. Frederick, J. Newell – 3rd Edition


The third edition of Modeling and Anaysis of Dynamic Systems continues to present students with the methodology applicable to the modeling and analysis of a variety of dynamic systems, regardless of their physical origin. It includes detailed modeling of mechanical, electrical, electro-mechanical, thermal, and fluid systems.

Models are developed in the form of state-variable equations, input-output differential equations, transfer functions, and block diagrams. The Laplace transform is used for analytical solutions. Computer solutions are based on MATLAB and Simulink. Examples include both linear and nonlinear systems. An introduction is given to the modeling and design tools for feedback control systems.

The text offers considerable flexibility in the selection of material for a specific course. Students majoring in many different engineering disciplines have used the text. Such courses are frequently followed by control-system design courses in the various disciplines
