This page collects the running examples for AM05 as well as additional examples that have been contributed by the authors and others.
AM05 contains a set of running examples that are used throughout the text. These examples have been chosen to span multiple application areas of feedback and control systems. The links below go to dedicated pages for each running example, where you can find a summary of the example and additional information beyond what is in the text.
- Balance Systems - systems in which a mass is balanced through the use of control (eg, vector thrust rockets and aircraft, Segway, inverted pendulum)
- Cruise Control - feedback system for maintaining the velocity of an automobile while driving
- Operational Amplifiers - electronic circuits for implementing active filters
- Compartment Models - used for modeling drug propagation in living organisms
