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!
  • 20% new end-of-chapter problems that highlight biomedical,robotics,or other engineering applications including a new progressive analysis and design problem – a hybrid electric vehicle
  • Greater emphasis on computer-aided analysis and design,including MATLAB, LabVIEW, and Simulink

  • Accessibly written. Generally regarded as the best written control textbook, noted for clear writingand accessible presentation. (11 of 18 Amazon reviewers give it a 5 out of 5)

  • Design Emphasis. Students are encouraged to go beyond a plug-and-chug approach through the use of design problems, progressive analysis and design problems, and examples and problems related to the case studies.

  • Real-world case studies (an autonomous submersible vehicle and an antenna position control system) are built up gradually throughout the chapters to demonstrate the analysis and design process.

  • Strong learning-by-example pedagogical approach. Skill-assessment exercises demonstrate step-by-step techniques to solve most problems; cyber exploration labs show how to apply popular software tools (MATLAB, LabVIEW, Simulink) to control engineering problems.

  • Clearly ties mathematics to physical reality, so students can comprehend how theoretical concepts connect to actual system dynamics.
