From the Back Cover
What every engineer needs to know about feedback control.Feedback Control of Dynamic Systems, 6/ecovers the material that every engineer, and most scientists and prospective managers, needs to know about feedback control, including concepts like stability, tracking, and robustness. Each chapter presents the fundamentals along with worked-out examples, all within a real-world context and with a historical background. The text also ties methods together so that a designer is able to pick the method that best fits the problem at hand. Cases featuring actual control problems are included. The new edition has been updated to include the latest developments in the field.
An Overview and Brief History of Feedback Control; Dynamic Models; Dynamic Response; Basic Properties of Feedback; The Root-Locus Design Method; The Frequency-Response Design Method; State-Space Design; Digital Control; Nonlinear Systems; Control-System Design: Principles and Case Studies.
MARKET: Perfect for practicing control engineers who wish to maintain their skills.

Top Customer Reviews
1. First, the text doesn't seem to be crafted with care: for example, on page 25, Example 2.2, variables are used that are not defined until the next paragraph. I spent a good 5 minutes just checking if I had missed these variables earlier in the text.
2. As I progressed through the book, I continuously found myself looking to other books and resources for the intuition and insight that I feel should have been in this text. The classical control parts of this book are similar to the corresponding sections in Ogata's Modern Control Engineering, but with the insight and depth of understanding omitted. What is left is a vague sense of the concepts lacking the rigor, derivations, or background necessary to feel like you really know what is going on. The section on state-space design is especially frustrating in this respect. All the rigor is banished to Appendix WD, available at the book website---as if the publishers forced the book to be smaller without any regard to the pedagogy of the physical text. Example: The student first sees the word "controllable" on page 430, uninformatively defined as "when the 'controllability matrix' is nonsingular". It isn't until page 450 that any useful word-definition of controllability is given, and if you really want the actual mathematical and intuitive definition, you have to go to the book website.
3. Of course there are plenty of MATLAB commands strewn about the book. If you already know the topic and want to learn to use the appropriate MATLAB commands, this book may be helpful.
