For courses in Control Theory. Progressively develop students' problem-solving skills through an integrated design and analysis approach to real-world engineering problems Modern Control Systems presents the structure of feedback control theory and provides a sequence of exciting discoveries as students proceed through the text and problems. Written to be equally useful for all engineering disciplines, this text is organized around the concepts of control systems theory in the context of frequency and time domains. It provides coverage of both classical and modern methods of control engineering to give students a strong foundation in basic principles that they can utilize to explore advanced topics in later chapters. Emphasis is placed on real-world complex control systems and practical design applications as well as evolving design strategies like green engineering and human-centered design. Problem solving is strongly emphasized, with an abundance of problems of increasing complexity that help students learn to apply theory to computer-aided design and analysis concepts using MATLABÂ® and LabVIEW MathScript. The 14th Edition incorporates over 20% new or updated problems, with a total of over 980 end-of-chapter exercises, problems, advanced problems, design problems, and computer problems.

Richard C. Dorf was Emeriti Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Davis. Known as an instructor who was highly concerned with the discipline of electrical engineering and its application to social and economic needs, Professor Dorf wrote and edited several successful engineering textbooks and handbooks, including the best-selling Engineering Handbook, second edition and the third edition of the Electrical Engineering Handbook. Professor Dorf was also co-author of Technology Ventures, a leading textbook on technology entrepreneurship. Professor Dorf was a Fellow of the IEEE and a Fellow of the ASEE. Dr. Dorf held a patent for the PIDA controller. Robert H. Bishop is the Dean of Engineering at the University of South Florida, President and CEO of the Institute of Applied Engineering, and a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering. Prior to coming to The University of South Florida, he was the Dean of Engineering at Marquette University and before that a Department Chair and Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at The University of Texas at Austin where he held the Joe J. King Professorship and was a Distinguished Teaching Professor. Professor Bishop started his engineering career as a member of the technical staff at the Charles Stark Draper Laboratory. He authors the well-known textbook for teaching graphical programming entitled Learning with LabVIEW and is also the editor-in-chief of the Mechatronics Handbook. Professor Bishop remains an active teacher and researcher and has authored/co-authored over one hundred and forty-five journal and conference papers. He is a Fellow of the AIAA, a Fellow of the American Astronautical Society (AAS), a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and active in ASEE and in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
