Continuous and Discrete Control Systems: Modeling, Identification, Design and Implementation, is an exciting new textbook from John Dorsey of the Georgia Institute of Technology. The book takes the reader through the entire design process and includes three case studies of actual systems that emphasize the experimental aspects of control design. Design is introduced early in the book via root locus analysis. A broad range of topics is covered including an introduction to modern robust control and state space analysis. The book is intended for a variety of 1-semester controls courses. The author has tried to bring the reader as close to a real laboratory experience as possible by walking the reader through each step of the design process: modeling, identification, design and especially implementation.
