Review quote

"@from:From the Foreword: It presents highly complex topics, but avoids relying on detailed mathematical analysis, and instead emphasizes practical approaches that can be applied by anyone working on drive and motion systems. I highly recommend Control System Design Guide, Second Edition as an extremely practical and thorough servo system controls reference. --Dan Carlson, Drive and Web Handling Engineer for a Fortune 500 Company Zone-based tuning is a popular and workable technique for separating out the control elements for tuning. ...For a discussion in greater detail, consult George Ellis's Control System Design Guide. --Embedded Systems Programming, November 2000 @from:From the Reviews: Control System Design Guide should be on every practicing servo control engineer's shelf. It provides a comprehensive overview of design methods and guidelines that typically take years of practice to learn. I wish that there had been a copy to read when I started my career in servo control. If you are working in this field, I strongly recommend that you read this book. --R. William Kneifel II, Ph.D., Development Manager, Trellis Software & Controls, Inc. No matter how much you think you may know about the subject, there is something everyone can learn from this book. This book is control systems A-Z, and is the best book I have seen on the subject. --Dave Trapasso, Senior Project Engineer, Advanced Product Development of Engine Control Systems, Major worldwide automotive components manufacturer George Ellis' new book, Control System Design Guide, 2nd edition, is a sure to bring readers to a crystal-clear understanding of the ususally complex and confusing control-systems theory most engineers learn at colleges and universities. . . Ellis illuminates and simplifies the subtleties of real-world control system design that often elude the neophyte. This book provides an abundance of useful, paractical information such as easy to follow diagrams on choosing the right type of controller for a given application. --Miles Budimir, MACHINE DESIGN, September, 2000. A brand new book, Control System Design Guide by George Ellis, senior scientist at Kollmorgen, should be a welcome addition to most control engineering professionals' reference libraries. The PC-oriented book uses ModelQ, a Microsoft Windows-based modeling and simulation program written by the author, to effectively demonstrate control concepts. Nine appendices add usefulness in the form of analytical methods, transformations, and guidance for using ModelQ. --CONTROL ENGINEERING E-Newsletter, August 2000
