PID Controllers: Theory, Design, and Tuning
A new model for control of systems with friction
In this paper we propose a new dynamic model for friction. The model captures most of the friction behavior that has been observed experimentally. This includes the Stribeck effect, hysteresis,Expand
Computer-Controlled Systems: Theory and Design
This volume focuses on the design of computer-controlled systems, featuring computational tools that can be applied directly and are explained with simple paper-and-pencil calculations. Expand
Adaptive Control
Benefiting from the feedback of users who are familiar with the first edition, the material has been reorganized and rewritten, giving a more balanced and teachable presentation of fundamentals and applications. Expand
Advanced PID Control
The authors of the best-selling book PID Controllers: Theory, Design, and Tuning once again combine their extensive knowledge in the PID arena to bring you an in-depth look at the world of PIDExpand
Introduction to Stochastic Control Theory
Feedback Systems: An Introduction for Scientists and Engineers
Feedback Systems develops transfer functions through the exponential response of a system, and is accessible across a range of disciplines that utilize feedback in physical, biological, information, and economic systems. Expand
Automatic tuning of simple regulators with specifications on phase and amplitude margins
A simple method for estimating the critical gain and the critical frequency is described, which may be used for automatic tuning of simple regulators as well as initialization of more complicated adaptive regulators. Expand
Friction Models and Friction Compensation
This paper reviews friction phenomena and friction models of interest for automatic control. Particular emphasis is given to two recently developed dynamic friction models: the Bliman-Sorine modelExpand
Swinging up a pendulum by energy control
It is shown that the behavior critically depends on the ratio of the maximum acceleration of the pivot to the acceleration of gravity. Expand
