Control Theory Tutorial: Basic Concepts Illustrated by Software Examples (Steven A. Frank)

In a clear self-study manual, this free-access book covers the fundamental ideas of control theory. By highlighting the subject's straightforward conceptual unity, it enhances the classic works. Even a novice can easily understand how and why the various components work together.

The reader soon obtains a glimpse of the bigger picture as the notions develop gradually and naturally one after another. Each idea is demonstrated with thorough examples and pictures. Each example comes with the whole software code, which may be used to test out different hypotheses, learn how to create programs for control analysis, and lay the groundwork for future research initiatives.

Robustness, design trade-offs, and optimality are the main concerns. The book develops a traditional linear theory for the most part. The book's final section discusses explicitly nonlinear extensions and resilience with respect to nonlinearity, as well as more complex subjects like adaptive control and model predictive control.

The emphasis on concepts and thorough comprehension of the various approaches will be helpful to new students as well as scientists from other backgrounds who want a brief and understandable study of control theory.
