Feedback Control Dynamic Systems – Franklin, Powell, Emami-Naeini – 4th Edition


This revision of a top-selling textbook on feedback control with the associated web site,, provides greater instructor flexibility and student readability. Chapter 4 on A First Analysis of Feedback has been substantially rewritten to present the material in a more logical and effective manner.

A new case study on biological control introduces an important new area to the students, and each chapter now includes a historical perspective to illustrate the origins of the field. As in earlier editions, the book has been updated so that solutions are based on the latest versions of MATLAB and SIMULINK.
