Control Systems Engineering by Nise
This book introduces students to the theory and practice of control systems engineering. The text emphasizes the practical application of the subject to the analysis and design of feedback systems. The study of control systems engineering is essential for students pursuing degrees in electrical, mechanical, aerospace, biomedical, or chemical engineering. Control systems are found in a broad range of applications within these disciplines, from aircraft and spacecraft to robots and process control systems.
Control Systems Engineering is suitable for upper-division college and university engineering students and for those who wish to master the subject matter through self-study. The student using this text should have completed typical lower-division courses in physics and mathematics through differential equations. Other required background material, including Laplace transforms and linear algebra, is incorporated in the text, either within chapter discussions or separately in the appendixes or on the book’s Companion Web site. This review material can be omitted without loss of continuity if the student does not require it.
Key Features: The key features of this seventh edition are: Standardized chapter organization Qualitative and quantitative explanations Examples, Skill-Assessment Exercises, and Case Studies throughout the text Cyber Exploration Laboratory, Hardware Interface Laboratory, and Virtual Experiments Abundant illustrations Numerous end-of-chapter problems Emphasis on design Flexible coverage Emphasis on computer-aided analysis and design including MATLAB 1 and LabVIEW 2 Icons identifying major topics Let us look at each feature in more detail.
Standardized Chapter Organization Each chapter begins with a list of chapter learning outcomes, followed by a list of case study learning outcomes that relate to specific student performance in solving a practical case study problem, such as an antenna azimuth position control system. Topics are then divided into clearly numbered and labeled sections containing explanations, examples, and, where appropriate, skill-assessment exercises with answers. These numbered sections are followed by one or more case studies, as will be outlined in a few paragraphs. Each chapter ends with a brief summary, several review questions requiring short answers, a set of homework problems, and experiments.
Qualitative and Quantitative Explanations: Explanations are clear and complete and, where appropriate, include a brief review of required background material. Topics build upon and support one another in a logical fashion. Groundwork for new concepts and terminology is carefully laid to avoid overwhelming the student and to facilitate self-study. Although quantitative solutions are obviously important, a qualitative or intuitive understanding of problems and methods of solution is vital to producing the insight required to develop sound designs. Therefore, whenever possible, new concepts are discussed from a qualitative perspective before quantitative analysis and design are addressed. For example, in Chapter 8 the student can simply look at the root locus and describe qualitatively the changes in transient response that will occur as a system parameter, such as gain, is varied. This ability is developed with the help of a few simple equations from Chapter 4. Examples, Skill-Assessment Exercises, and Case Studies Explanations are clearly illustrated by means of numerous numbered and labeled Examples throughout the text. Where appropriate, sections conclude with Skill-Assessment Exercises. These are computation drills, most with answers that test comprehension and provide immediate feedback. Complete solutions can be found at www.wiley.com/college/nise.
Broader examples in the form of Case Studies can be found after the last numbered section of every chapter, with the exception of Chapter 1. These case studies are practical application problems that demonstrate the concepts introduced in the chapter. Each case study concludes with a “Challenge” problem that students may work in order to test their understanding of the material. One of the case studies, an antenna azimuth position control system, is carried throughout the book. The purpose is to illustrate the application of new material in each chapter to the same physical system, thus highlighting the continuity of the design process. Another, more challenging case study, involving an Unmannered Free-Swimming Submersible Vehicle, is developed over the course of five chapters. Cyber Exploration Laboratory, Hardware Interface Laboratory, and Virtual Experiments Computer experiments using MATLAB, Simulink 3 and the Control System Toolbox are found at the end of the Problems sections under the sub-heading Cyber Exploration Laboratory.
The experiments allow the reader to verify the concepts covered in the chapter via simulation. The reader also can change parameters and perform “what if” exploration to gain insight into the effect of parameter and configuration changes. The experiments are written with stated Objectives, Minimum Required Software Packages, as well as Prelab, Lab, and Postlab tasks and questions. Thus, the experiments may be used for a laboratory course that accompanies the class. Cover sheets for these experiments are available at www.wiley.com.college/nise.
