Abstract : Pilots might be inclined to associate the phrase control system with only aircraft flight control systems. Although the control system theory of this course has a large application to flight control sysems, this material applies to any process or system in which control is exercised over some output variable. Examples of these controlled variables are: the speed of an automotile, the temperature of a room, the attitude of a spacecraft, ad infinitum.
