Linear Feedback Controls: The Essentials, Second Edition, presents the latest research and industrial practices on linear feedback controls. Classical (linear) controls are a special case for books because this area is well researched and the field has plateaued. This book details the progress that has taken place in advanced controls, such as nonlinear controls, adaptive controls, and controls based on computer learning and AI, to name a few. It is ideal for upper level students in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, biological/biomedical engineering, chemical engineering and agricultural and environmental engineering, providing a helpful refresher and/or introduction for graduate students and professionals.

Key Features

  • Focuses on the essentials of control fundamentals, system analysis, mathematical description and modeling, and control design
  • Illustrates the theory and practical application for each point using real-world examples
  • Contains updated chapters and new sections on the Design of Feedback Controls and Robustness


Advanced undergraduate. Graduate students and professionals in the fields of electrical, mechanical, biological/biomedical, chemical, agricultural and environmental engineering
