The Dynamics of Automatic Control Systems focuses on the dynamics of automatic control systems and the fundamental results of the theory of automatic control. The discussion covers theoretical methods of analysis and synthesis of automatic control systems common to systems of various physical natures and designs. Concrete examples of the simplest functional circuits are presented to illustrate the principal ideas in the construction of automatic control systems and the application of the theoretical methods. Comprised of 19 chapters, this book begins by describing different forms of automatic control systems, with emphasis on open and closed loop automatic systems. The reader is then introduced to transients in automatic regulation systems; methods for improving the regulation process; and some problems in the theory of automatic regulation. Subsequent chapters deal with linearization and transformation of the differential equations of an automatic regulation system; stability criteria for ordinary linear systems; equations of systems with delay and with distributed parameters; and equations of nonlinear automatic regulation systems. The oscillations and stability of nonlinear systems are also considered. This monograph will be of interest to engineers and students.
