Control Systems/All Versions

This page is going to be used to maintain a list of all the different versions available for the Control Systems book. Each different version will contain different amounts of material presented in different orders. Each version will target a different audience. Instructors can pick and choose which versions best meet their needs and the needs of their students. Readers can choose to print only the particular information that they are interested in reading.

See the Discussion Page to discuss the child versions of this book. All child versions should include the {{Control Systems/Child}} template.

All printable versions contain the standard cover page, and all the necessary end-texts. Warning: Printable versions are typically very large pages, and can take a long time to load in your browser.

Modern Controls edit

This printable version focuses on the modern control methods, and attempts to minimize the inclusion of classical control methods. The primary focus of this version will be on state-space equations, solutions of state-space equations, and Lyapunov Stability methods.
  • System Identification
  • State-Space Equations
  • System Representation
  • Stability (Lyapunov Stability)
  • Controllability, Observability
  • Controllers, Compensators
