Highly regarded for its practical case studies and accessible writing, Norman Nise's "Control Systems Engineering" has become the top selling text for this course. It takes a practical approach, presenting clear and complete explanations. Real world examples demonstrate the analysis and design process, while helpful skill assessment exercises, numerous in-chapter examples, review questions and problems reinforce key concepts. In addition, "What If" experiments help expand an engineer's knowledge and skills. Tutorials are also included on the latest versions of MATLAB(R), the Control System Toolbox, Simulink(R), the Symbolic Math Toolbox, and MATLAB(R)'s graphical user interface (GUI) tools. A new progressive problem, a solar energy parabolic trough collector, is featured at the end of each chapter. Ten new simulated control lab experiments now complement the online resources that accompany the text. This edition also includes Hardware Interface Laboratory experiments for use on the MyDAQ(R) platform from National Instruments(TM). A tutorial for MyDAQ(R) is included as Appendix D.
