Stability and Control of Aircraft Systems

File Size: 2.11 Mb

There are many textbooks on the subject of feedback control; however, most are highly mathematical and, as a result, often repel the seasoned engineer who may have become a little rusty regarding the rigors of certain aspects of mathematics that include such things as differential equations and complex number theory. In a similar manner, unnecessarily complex mathematics can be a turnoff to engineering students who might otherwise find the control systems engineering field both challenging and exciting.

This book is not a textbook in the traditional sense but an attempt by the author to give back to the next generation of control systems engineers a guidebook containing easy to follow descriptions of the important aspects of classical control supported by examples based on real world events that have occurred during the author’s career in the aerospace industry. The arrangement and content of the book is an attempt to provide an effective answer to the question ‘What would have been most useful to me as a prospective systems engineer in the pre-to-post graduate timeframe seeking guidance and insight into the fundamentals of feedback control?’.

In the opinion of the author, complex mathematics need not be a significant barrier to learning if a pragmatic presentation methodology can be developed providing a more straightforward approach to the subject that can be more easily absorbed by the practicing engineer and that provides an inspiration to the prospective control engineering graduate.
