The book on Control Systems includes the syllabi of M.D. University and Kurukshetra University. The book represents the various aspects of control systems in a very easy language for the benefit of engineering students. It presents a reasonably complete treatment of all types of Control Systems. The basic concepts of Control Systems are explained in Chapter 1 which lay the ground for the entire book. Necessary diagrams are introduced for understanding different types of Control Systems. Chapter 2 deals with physical representation of Control Systems in a very efficient manner. Chapter 3 provides knowledge about the transient and steady state response of the Control Systems in a very simple and effective way. Chapter 4 to Chapter 6 are devoted to the stability in Time Domain and Frequency Domain. The compensation techniques and various types of controllers are described in Chapter 7. The Chapter 8 includes some control components used in the industries. Well chosen illustrative examples are also discussed in each chapter with problems of exercise at the end of each chapter. Further, the objective questions with answers have been added to the chapters. The experience of teaching in undergraduate classes for a long time has given the authors the idea how to present the material to the students in an interesting and precise manner. For the selection and arrangement of topics the authors have taken guidance from the various text books available. The authors intend to record their grateful acknowledgement to the inspiration and suggestion from their friends and colleagues. Suggestions are welcome from the teachers and students.
