Control System Advanced Methods – William S. Levine – 2nd Edition


At publication, The Control immediately became the definitive resource that working with modern control systems required. Among its many accolades, that first edition was cited by the AAP as the Best of 1996.

Now, 15 years later, William has once again compiled the most comprehensive and authoritative resource on control engineering. He has fully reorganized the text to reflect the technical advances achieved since the last edition and has expanded its contents to include the multidisciplinary perspective that is making control engineering a critical component in so many fields.

Now expanded from one to three volumes, The Control Handbook, Second Edition organizes cutting-edge contributions from more than 200 leading experts. The third volume, Control , includes design and analysis for MIMO linear and LTI systems, Kalman filters and observers, hybrid systems, and nonlinear systems. It also covers advanced considerations regarding —

  • Stability
  • Adaptive controls
  • System identification
  • Stochastic control
  • Control of distributed parameter systems
  • and networked controls

As with the first edition, the new edition not only stands as a record of accomplishment in control engineering but provides researchers with the means to make further advances.
