System Dynamics – William Palm III – 2nd Edition

Description

includes the strongest treatment of computational and system of any available text, with its early introduction of ® and Simulink®. The text’s extensive coverage also includes discussion of the root locus and response plots, among other for assessing system behavior in the time and frequency domains as well as topics such as function discovery, parameter , and system identification techniques, motor performance evaluation, and system dynamics in everyday life.
