Control Systems Engineering, 7th Edition

ISBN: 9781118170519

Control Systems Engineering, 7th Edition 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. 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 platform from National Instruments.


  • Close the loop between your lectures and the lab! Integrated throughout the Nise text are 10 virtual experiments, which enable you 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 you to apply concepts to virtual systems, implement control solutions and evaluate results. The virtual labs deepen the homework learning experience and prepare you to make more effective use of your time in the lab.
  • 20% new end-of-chapter problems that highlight biomedical, robotics or other engineering applications, including a new progressive analysis and design problem – a solar energy parabolic trough collector.
  • Greater emphasis on computer-aided analysis and design, including MATLAB®, LabVIEW®, and Simulink®. Simulink® has been updated to Simulink 8.1 and a new section has been added: Using Simulink for control system design.
  • Hardware Interface Laboratory experiments have been added to certain chapters. These experiments use National Instrument’s myDAQ® to interface your computer to actual hardware to test control system principles in the real-world.
