Control Engineering: An introduction with the use of Matlab
by Derek Atherton
Publisher: BookBoon 2009
Number of pages: 155
The book covers the basic aspects of linear single loop feedback control theory. Explanations of the mathematical concepts used in classical control such as root loci, frequency response and stability methods are explained by making use of MATLAB plots but omitting the detailed mathematics found in many textbooks. There is a chapter on PID control and two chapters provide brief coverage of state variable methods.

The book is concerned with the effects of nonlinearity in feedback control systems and techniques which can be used to design feedback loops containing nonlinear elements. The material is of an introductory nature but hopefully gives an overview.

Using the tools of optimal control, robust control and adaptive control, the authors develop the theory of high performance control. Topics include performance enhancement, stabilizing controllers, offline controller design, and dynamical systems.
by Bruce A. Francis - Springer
An elementary treatment of linear control theory with an H-infinity optimality criterion. The systems are all linear, timeinvariant, and finite-dimensional and they operate in continuous time. The book has been used in a one-semester graduate course.

A trend of investigation of Nonlinear Control Systems has been present over the last few decades. This book includes topics such as Feedback Linearization, Lyapunov Based Control, Adaptive Control, Optimal Control and Robust Control.
