Control systems engineering, 5th ed.

Authors I.J. Nagrath and M. Gopal
Place of Publication Kent
Date of Publication c2008
Publisher Anshan

This book provides an integrated treatment of continuous-time and discrete-time systems. It emphasizes the interdisciplinary nature of the subject and examples have been drawn from various engineering disciplines to illustrate the basic system concepts. In particular, the book deals with the modeling of practical systems involving various hardware. Time and frequency domain techniques of the analysis and design of control systems have been discussed at length. Consisting of 16 chapters, this new edition has been improved by the addition of numerous real-world examples, and by the inclusion of PID controller design, a comparison table of long/lead compensators, industrial OPAMP compensating networks and a design example using root-locus technique.
 
 
Network analysis and synthesis: including linear system analysis, 3rd ed.

Author C.L. Wadhwa
Place of Publication Tunbridge Wells, U.K.
Date of Publication c2008
Publisher Anshan

This book has been designed as a basic text for undergraduate students of electrical, electronics and communication and computer engineering. The book explains both fundamental concepts such as circuit elements, Kirchhoff’s laws, network equations and resonance, and relatively advanced topics, namely modern filters, state variable analysis, active RC filters and sensitivity considerations. The book is laid out in a systematic and user-friendly way, consisting of 16 chapters, each with solved examples and practice problems to immediately test the reader’s understanding of the subject. There are also over 500 multiple choice questions at the end of the book for the reader to dip into and further assess his grasp of the book. In particular, Prof. Wadhwa deals with the theory and application of Fourier and Laplace transforms, classical and modern filter theory, z-transform for discrete systems and analogous systems, SPICE, and both Foster and Cauer realization. This is the third edition of a successful text book suitable for courses in electrical and computer engineering and also relevant to postgraduates and professional engineers.
 
 
Electronics explained : the new systems approach to learning electronics

Author Louis E. Frenzel, Jr.
Place of Publication Amsterdam
Date of Publication c2010
Publisher Newnes

Industry veteran, Louis Frenzel, gives us the real scoop on electronic product fundamentals as they are today. Rather than tearing electronics apart and looking at every little piece, the author takes a systems-level view. For example, you will not learn how to make a circuit but how a signal flows from one integrated circuit (IC) to the next and so on to the ultimate goal. This practical application-driven viewpoint and breadth of coverage is unprecedented. This book touches upon TV, audio, satellite, radio, wireless communication, and networking. All of this content is brought to life through hands-on projects that you will enjoy whether you are a hobbyist, student, or engineer. This is a fresh look at how electronics work. Learn about the inner workings of your HDTV, cell phone, and video game console. Hands-on projects and experiments of this title bring electronics to life.
 
 
Principles of electric circuits : electron flow version, 9th ed.

Author Thomas L. Floyd
Place of Publication Upper Saddle River, N.J.
Date of Publication c2010
Publisher Prentice-Hall

For DC/AC Circuits courses requiring a comprehensive, classroom tested text with an emphasis on troubleshooting and the practical application of DC/AC principles and concepts. This text provides an exceptionally clear introduction to DC/AC circuits supported by superior exercises, examples, and illustrations and an emphasis on troubleshooting and applications.
