Digital controllers are part of nearly all modern personal, industrial, and transportation systems. Every senior or
graduate student of electrical, chemical, or mechanical engineering should therefore be familiar with the basic theory
of digital controllers. This new text covers the fundamental principles and applications of digital control engineering,
with emphasis on engineering design.
Fadali and Visioli cover analysis and design of digitally controlled systems and describe applications of digital control
in a wide range of fields. With worked examples and Matlab applications in every chapter and many end-of-chapter
assignments, this text provides both theory and practice for those coming to digital control engineering for the first
time, whether as a student or practicing engineer.
- This new edition covers new topics such as Model Predictive Control and Linear Matrix Inequalities.
- To engage students, it has more illustrations and simple examples; the mathematical notation is reduced
where possible, and it also includes intermediate mathematical steps in derivations.
- Companion website features resources for instructors, including Powerpoint slides and solutions.
- Extensive use of CAD Packages: Matlab and Simulink sections at the end of each chapter show how to
implement concepts from the chapter.
- Contains review material to aid understanding of digital control analysis and design.
- Includes some advanced material to make it suitable for an introductory graduate level class or for two
quarters at the senior/graduate level.
- The mathematics background required for understanding most of the book is based on what can be
reasonably expected from the average electrical, chemical, or mechanical engineering senior.

Professor and Chair of Department of Electrical & Biomedical Engineering, College of Engineering, University of Nevada, Reno, NV, USA. M. Sami Fadali earned a BS in Electrical Engineering from Cairo University in 1974, an MS from the Control Systems Center, UMIST, England, in 1977 and a Ph. D. from the University of Wyoming in 1980. He was an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of King Abdul Aziz in Jeddah , Saudi Arabia 1981-1983. From 1983-85, he was a Post Doctoral Fellow at Colorado State University. In 1985, he joined the Electrical Engineering Dept. at the University of Nevada, Reno, where he is currently Professor of Electrical Engineering. In 1994 he was a visiting professor at Oakland University and GM Research and Development Labs. He spent the summer of 2000 as a Senior Engineer at TRW, San Bernardino. His research interests are in the areas of fuzzy logic stability and control, state estimation and fault detection, and applications to power systems, renewable energy, and physiological systems
