I am the owner of I have started this site because I have not found a good single-source site for controls. The control systems project in WikiBooks is good for theory but I have found that the organization of the topics is not optimal. Several web sites for university courses in controls provide excellent theory. But the resources are spread all over the web.

Additionally, few web resources provide practical help on the design of real world controllers. University courses speak in generalities about design. So do most web sites. I plan for to be more useful.
