Control Systems Engineering by Norman S. Nise

This product was recommended by CJ Xia from Boster Biological Technology

First, the book is extremely comprehensive and covers all aspects of control systems engineering. Moreover, the book includes numerous worked examples and end-of-chapter problems, which help readers to better understand the material. Flawlessly, this book is frequently updated to keep up with the latest advances in the field.

Control Circuits in Power Electronics by Miguel Castilla

This product was recommended by Derrick Hathaway from VEM-Medical

This book describes cutting-edge techniques for implementing modulation schemes, control algorithms, and gate drivers with analog circuits, digital microprocessors, or field-programmable gate arrays.

Sampled-Data Models for Linear and Nonlinear Systems by Juan I. Yuz

This product was recommended by Derrick Hathaway from VEM-Medical

The book approaches the classic subject of discretization from a new and interesting angle. This book will be useful to graduate students and researchers in systems, control, and signal processing.

Mechatronics by W. Bolton

This product was recommended by Irene Graham from Spylix

The integration of electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, control, and computer engineering – Mechatronics – lies at the heart of the numerous gadgets, processes, and technology without which modern life would seem impossible. From auto-focus cameras to car engine management systems and from state-of-the-art robots to the humble washing machine, Mechatronics has a hand in them all.

Control System Design by Bernard Friedland

This product was recommended by Irene Graham from Spylix

Feedback control, state-space representation of dynamic systems, dynamics of linear systems, frequency-domain analysis, controllability, observability, and shaping dynamic response are all covered in this introduction to state-space approaches. Other topics covered include linear observers, compensator design based on the separation principle, linear and quadratic optimal control, random processes, and Kalman filters. Version from 1986.

Control Systems Safety Evaluation and Reliability by William M. Goble

This product was recommended by Irene Graham from Spylix

This book, Control Systems Safety Evaluation, and Reliability is written for a broad audience. Keeping up with the latest safety regulations and reliability engineering subjects is easier with the help of this thoroughly revised and expanded third edition. In this course, aspiring and practicing control system designers will understand how to accurately assess control system components, different system topologies, vendor communication, and life-cycle cost estimations.

Modern Control Engineering by Ogata

This product was recommended by Bello Taoheed from Entafield

The book also covers all aspects of continuous-time control systems, including root locus, frequency response, and state space approach. This particular book also features updated chapters that cover topics such as root locus analysis and frequency response analysis.

Computer-Controlled Systems by Karl A Astrom

This product was recommended by Tony from HuntingSage

Karl Astrom is one of the leading experts in the field of control engineering. He has a number of great books, all of which I would recommend. Computer-Controlled Systems is great for anyone looking to bridge the gap between the theory learned in university courses and how it is applied to actual control systems in industry. Virtually all control systems nowadays are run on digital processors and the implications of how this affects the system must be well understood.
