Modern day control
engineering (also called control systems engineering) is a relatively new field of study that gained a significant
attention during twentieth century with the advancement in technology. It can be broadly defined as practical
application of control theory. Control engineering has an essential role in a wide range of control systems from a
simple household washing machine to a complex high performance F-16 fighter aircraft. It allows one to understand
a physical system in terms of its inputs, outputs and various components with different behaviors using
mathematical modeling, control it in a desired manner with the controllers designed using control systems design
tools, and implement the controller on the physical system employing available technology. A system can be
mechanical, electrical, fluid, chemical, financial and even biological, and the mathematical modeling, analysis
and controller design shall be done using control theory in one or many of the time, frequency and complex-s
domains depending on the nature of the control system design problem. -
