From the Back Cover

Motivate Students with Real-World Control Systems Emphasizing the practical application of control systems engineering, this 3rd edition with its updated contents will motivate students to learn how to analyze and design feedback control systems that support today's advanced technology. Motivation is obtained through clear and complete explanations of how to design real-world systems. Topics are presented in a logical and progressive way that builds and supports understanding. Whenever possible, new concepts are first presented from a qualitative perspective to help students gain the insight needed to develop sound designs. Next, a detailed discussion of quantitative tools gives readers the ability to design parameters and configurations for systems they will encounter during their career. And with the use of MATLAB(r), students will find out how to apply the latest computer methods to the analysis and design of control systems. Key Features of the Third Edition
* Case studies, using the same system progressively, are integrated throughout the text to provide students with a realistic view of each stage of the control system design process.
* A methodology with clearly defined steps is presented for each type of design problem.
* Numerous in-chapter examples and skill-assessment exercises, as well as end-of-chapter review questions and problems, including a progressive analysis and design problem that uses the same system, are provided.
* An introduction to state-space methods of analysis and design is included. These sections are clearly marked and can be taught along with classical methods, taught separately, or skipped without loss of continuity.
* Tutorials are provided on how to use MATLAB(r), the Control System Toolbox, Simulink(r), and the Symbolic Math Toolbox to analyze and design control systems. Also included are tutorials on how to use two MATLAB(r) graphical user interface (GUI) design and analysis tools - the LTI Viewer and the Root Locus Design GUI. All tutorials and MATLAB(r) code are contained in the text's appendices so as not to detract from the teaching of control systems engineering principles. References to these appendices are provided at appropriate places in the text.
* An accompanying CD-ROM provides valuable additional material, such as stand-alone computer applications, electronic files of the text's computer programs for use with MATLAB(r), additional appendices, and solutions to skill-assessment exercises.
* Illustrations from the book in the form of electronic files are available at http://www.wiley.com/college/nise --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It is well presented and easy to understand.

As a contract engineer, I designed a brushless DC motor controller and my company needed a good reference for them to understand the control system.

This text is the good control systems textbook model to learn from, as an author. Nise is made for undergraduates to master control systems concepts in both state-space and transform domains. Generally, it lacks a lot of details in state-space area; it is almost a complete coverage of classical control basic concepts.

The organization of the text is not just good. It makes this text more like the only well organized text you ,may, find every 10 texts you read!

However, the text assumes you have a background in the basic differential equations and laplace transform. It connects the mathematics you know with the system model in an outstanding way that really make you visualize the system dynamics just perfectly! Surly, that depends, somehow, on the reader's motivation toward learning the concept. Although the text doesn't cover thoroughly the state-space approach, it connects both domains in your mind that make you able to see the system poles in the time domain! You are absolutely right to say 'So what!, I know all about Eignvalues and eigenvectors!', it shows you it if you don't. So, if you do know the subject well then maybe you shouldn't buy this introductory level text at all!

The bottom line is: I strongly recommend this text for classical control systems course during the undergraduate level. However, I would only recommend to use it in the state-space course as a supplementary text besides some good state-space text like Brogan.

This book is excellent!!. It is well presented and easy to understand. It did not assume that the reader knows the basic and explains the essence that is needed to follow through the subject. Control System is a subject that I had problem grasping while doing my undergraduates because I was thrown with all the mathematical formulas and left to make sense out of them. In short I did not learn much from school. Control system was a dark side for me until I discovered this book. Now I understand more than before and I am read it like a story book. This book made me helped so much that I am compelled to write this review. I wish I had this book earlier. This is the kind of book that I have been searching for all this while

One of the best books for beginners I have ever read. Mr Nise presented his concepts and ideas in a very simple way, clear cut and suitable for beginners in the field of control engineering. I found that it serves as an introductory text that builds my basis in control engineering concepts

As a contract engineer, I designed a brushless DC motor controller and my company needed a good reference for them to understand the control system. This was far better than all the books I read.
Most people deal with low order control systems and don't want the math to get in the way of understanding the concept. But control systems is a big topic and not typically well explained.
This book is first rate from begining to end; It derives clearly and consisely all math. Builds a good tool set of common place real world examples. And, explians concepts clearly with good illustration.

This is a textbook that's actually worth the price. Definitely one of the best engineering textbooks I have come across. The explanations are clear and precise, and the questions are stimulating. It's a great book to learn the fundamentals of control systems.

Format: Hardcover
Norman Nise has done a great job with this book.This book is a first hand guide for beginners who have absolutely no knowledge of Control Systems and its purposes. The book with its details of each methodology & its purposes gives an indepth view of the subject. This is excellent tool for beginners (for understanding the fundamentals) and gradually upgrading to a better level by able to design systems. The Skill Assessment Exercises are able to bring out the key techniques to solve any problem. A must buy for all people interested in Control Systems Engineering and looking for a book where fundamentals can be cleared.
