Overview

Highly regarded for its accessible writing and practical case studies, Control Systems Engineering is the most widely adopted textbook for this core course in Mechanical and Electrical engineering programs. This new sixth edition has been revised and updated with 20% new problems and greater emphasis on computer-aided design.

Close the loop between your lectures and the lab!

Integrated throughout the Nise text are 10 virtual experiments, which enable students to implement the design-simulate-prototype workflow of practicing engineers. Powered by LabVIEW software and simulations of Quanser’s lab plants, the virtual labs enable students to apply concepts to virtual systems, implement control solutions and evaluate their results. The virtual labs deepen the homework learning experience and prepare students to make more effective use of their time in the lab.  Empower your students to take control of their learning with virtual labs accessible anywhere internet is available!

Completely updated, this new edition of Nise's popular book on the design of control systems shows how to use MATLAB to perform control-system calculations. Designed for the professional or engineering student who wants a quick and readable update on designing control systems, the text features a series of tightly focused and superbly crafted examples that make each concept of designing control systems easily and quickly understandable to the reader.
