This book is a didactic guide which offers the reader an in-depth understanding of analog automation, as well as the opportunity to quickly learn about the computer-aided feedback control of dynamic processes.

It allows readers to reinforce their skills in analog automation and better understand the world of computer-aided digital feedback controllers by focusing on the relevance of computer-aided digital feedback control technology and on the experimental modeling of dynamic processes. The book also studies computer-aided synthesis and simulation techniques for block diagrams of discrete feedback control loops, as well as modern rapid design tools for optimal PID controllers. Finally, methods for the discretization of dynamic processes are presented.

Didactic Matlab® programs can also be found in this book, which allow the reader to reproduce the numerical and graphical results presented throughout, as well as corrected exercises at the end of each chapter to facilitate understanding.
