Modern Control Systems – Richard Dorf, Robert Bishop – 11th Edition


Written to be equally useful for all disciplines, this book is organized around the concept of theory as it has been developed in the frequency and time domains. It provides coverage of classical control employing locus design, frequency and response design using Bode and Nyquist plots. It also covers based on state variable models including pole placement design techniques with full-state feedback and full-state observers.

The book covers several important topics including robust control systems and system sensitivity, state variable models, controllability and observability, control systems, internal model control, robust PID controllers, and computer-aided design and . For all types of engineers who are interested in a solid introduction to control systems.
