At publication, The Control Handbook immediately became the definitive resource that engineers working with modern control systems required. Among its many accolades, that first edition was cited by the AAP as the Best Engineering Handbook of 1996.

Now, 15 years later, William Levine has once again compiled the most comprehensive and authoritative resource on control engineering. He has fully reorganized the text to reflect the technical advances achieved since the last edition and has expanded its contents to include the multidisciplinary perspective that is making control engineering a critical component in so many fields.

Now expanded from one to three volumes, The Control Handbook, Second Edition brilliantly organizes cutting-edge contributions from more than 200 leading experts representing every corner of the globe. They cover everything from basic closed-loop systems to multi-agent adaptive systems and from the control of electric motors to the control of complex networks. Progressively organized, the three volume set includes:

  • Control System Fundamentals
  • Control System Applications
  • Control System Advanced Methods
  • Any practicing engineer, student, or researcher working in fields as diverse as electronics, aeronautics, or biomedicine will find this handbook to be a time-saving resource filled with invaluable formulas, models, methods, and innovative thinking. In fact, any physicist, biologist, mathematician, or researcher in any number of fields developing or improving products and systems will find the answers and ideas they need. As with the first edition, the new edition not only stands as a record of accomplishment in control engineering but provides researchers with the means to make further advances.

    About the Author:

    Dr. William S. Levine received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from M.I.T. He then joined the faculty of the University of Maryland, College Park where he is currently Research Professor of ECE. Throughout his career, he has specialized in the design and analysis of control systems and related problems in estimation, filtering, and system modeling. Motivated by the desire to understand a collection of interesting controller designs, he has done a great deal of research on mammalian control of movement in collaboration with several neurophysiologists.

    Dr. Levine is co-author of Using MATLAB to Analyze and Design Control Systems (1992, second edition, 1995) and editor of The Control Handbook (published by CRC Press in cooperation with IEEE Press), and of a series on control engineering for Birkhauser. He is also co-editor of The Handbook of Networked and Embedded Control Systems (published by Birkhauser, 2005). He has been president of the IEEE Control Systems Society and the American Cntrol Council. He is presently the Chairman of the SIAM special interest group Control Theory and its Applications.

    Dr. Levine is a Fellow of the IEEE, a Distinguished Member of the IEEE Control Systems Society, and a recipient of the IEEE Third Millennium Medal. He and his collaborators received the Schroers Award for outstanding rotorcraft research in 1998. He and another group of collaborators received the award for outstanding paper in the IEEE Transactions on Auotomatic Control for "Discrete Time Point Processes in Urban Traffic Queue Estimation"
