Feedback Control of Dynamic Systems - Seventh Edition

Gene F. Franklin, J. David Powell, Abbas Emami-Naeini, Feedback Control of Dynamic Systems, 7th edition, Pearson, 2015, ISBN-10: 0133496597 • ISBN-13: 9780133496598

Feedback Control of Dynamic Systems, 7/e covers 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 comprehensive, worked-out examples, all within a real-world context and with historical background information. The authors also provide case studies with close integration of MATLAB throughout.

The book is available for purchase at the publisher's web site:


There is also a graduate level book on this material that focuses on digital implementations entitled: Digital Control of Dynamic Systems.
