The Dynamics of a Simple Servomechanism for Angular Position Control

  • P. Atkinson


One of the most important problems in control engineering is that of mechanical position control of heavy masses capable of rotation or translation. Such problems occur in machine tool control, automatic steering of aircraft, ships, guided weapons and space craft, automatic positioning of guns, launchers, radar aerials and radio-telescopes, automatic handling of materials, to mention but a few.
