Control systems are one of the most important engineering fields, and recent advances in microelectonics and microelectromechanical systems have made feedback controls ubiquitous – a simple cell phone, for example, can have dozens of feedback control systems. Recent research focuses on advanced controls, such as nonlinear systems, adaptive controls, or controls based on computer learning and artificial intelligence. Conversely, classical (linear) control theory is well established; yet, it provides the crucial foundation not only for advanced control topics, but also for the many everyday control systems ranging from cell phone backlight control to self-balancing hoverboard scooters. Linear Feedback Controls provides a comprehensive, yet compact introduction to classical control theory. The present Second Edition has been expanded to include important topics, such as state-space models and control robustness. Moreover, aspects of the practical realization have been significantly expanded with complete design examples and with typical building blocks for control systems.

The book is ideal for upper level students in electrical and mechanical engineering, for whom a course in Feedback Controls is usually required. Moreover, students in bioengineering, chemical engineering, and agricultural and environmental engineering can benefit from the introductory character and the practical examples, and the book provides an introduction or helpful refresher for graduate students and professionals.
