9780138954833: Introduction to Control Systems Technology

Marrying an academic examination of control system technology with a reference that practicing engineers and technicians can include in their personal libraries, this carefully-balanced study covers the terminology, concepts, principles, procedures and computations used by engineers and technicians to analyze, select, specify, design and maintain control systems. An accompanying diskette provides computer programs that emulate proven graphical design methods of analysis and design.

From the Back Cover:

Introduction to Control System Technology, Seventh Edition, is both a textbook on control system technology and a valuable reference that engineers and technicians will want in their personal libraries.

Outstanding features of this text include:

  • A computer disk packaged with the text includes a graphical design program that emulates the classical Bode design method. Using this program, the designer can observe how each control mode changes the shape of the open-loop frequency response of the system. By trying different PID control mode values, the designer can use a "design-by-trial" procedure to search for the best possible design.
  • The use of analogies to develop common elements for modeling and analyzing electrical, fluid flow, thermal, or mechanical components helps students translate knowledge of one type of component to components of other types.
  • End-of-chapter exercises challenge students with practical problems at various levels of difficulty. The exercises are grouped by section numbers with multiple simple problems to reinforce student learning, followed by more complex problems to generate interest in the subject.
