Control engineering courses have been given in universities for over fifty years. In fact it is just
fifty years since I gave my first lectures on the subject. The basic theoretical topics taught in what
is now often referred to as classical control have changed little over these years, but the tools
which can be used to support theoretical analysis and the technologies used in control systems
implementation have changed beyond recognition.
The purpose of ebook Control engineering problems with solutions is to provide both worked examples and additional problems, with answers only. A major objective is to enable the reader to develop confidence in analytical work by showing how calculations can be checked using Matlab/Simulink.
Advanced Control Engineering provides a complete course in control engineering for undergraduates of all technical disciplines. Starting with a basic overview of elementary control theory this text quickly moves on to a rigorous examination of more advanced and cutting edge date aspects such as robust and intelligent control, including neural networks and genetic algorithms.
Robot Manipulator Control offers a complete survey of control systems for serial-link robot arms and acknowledges how robotic device performance hinges upon a well-developed control system. Containing over 750 essential equations, this thoroughly up-to-date Second Edition, the book explicates theoretical and mathematical requisites for controls design and summarizes current techniques in computer simulation and implementation of controllers. It also addresses procedures and issues in computed-torque, robust, adaptive, neural network, and force control.
Electrical Engineering Dictionary is a continually updated CD that provides workable definitions for practicing engineers. It serves as a reference and research tool for students and offers practical information for scientists and researchers in other disciplines. Areas examined include applied electrical engineering, microwave engineering, control engineering, power engineering, digital systems engineering, and device electronics.
John A. Shaw is a process control engineer and president of Process Control Solutions. An engineering graduate of N. C. State University, he previously worked for Duke Power Company in Charlotte, N. C. and for Taylor Instrument Company (now part of ABB, Inc.) in, N. Y. Rochester He is the author of over 20 articles and papers and continues to live in Rochester.
Since the foundation and up to the current state-of-the-art in control engineering, the
problems of PID control steadily attract great attention of numerous researchers and
remain inexhaustible source of new ideas for process of control system design and
industrial applications. PID control effectiveness is usually caused by the nature of
dynamical processes, conditioned that the majority of the industrial dynamical
processes are well described by simple dynamic model of the first or second order....
The topics of control engineering and signal processing continue to ﬂourish and
develop. In common with general scientiﬁc investigation, new ideas, concepts
and interpretations emerge quite spontaneously and these are then discussed,
used, discarded or subsumed into the prevailing subject paradigm. Sometimes
these innovative concepts coalesce into a new sub-discipline within the broad
subject tapestry of control and signal processing. This preliminary battle be-
tween old and new usually takes place at conferences, through the Internet and
in the journals of the discipline.
Fuzzy control is a practical alternative for a variety of challenging control applications
since it provides a convenient method for constructing nonlinear controllers
via the use of heuristic information. Such heuristic information may come from
an operator who has acted as a “human-in-the-loop” controller for a process. In
the fuzzy control design methodology, we ask this operator to write down a set of
rules on how to control the process, then we incorporate these into a fuzzy controller
that emulates the decision-making process of the human.
The theory of variable structure systems with sliding modes is currently one of the
most important research topics within the control engineering domain. Moreover,
recently a number of important applications of the systems primarily in the fi eld of
power electronics, control of electric drives, robotics and position regulation of sophisticated
mechanical systems have also been reported.
This section describes heating, ventilating, and air
conditioning (HVAC) systems and discusses characteristics and
components of automatic control systems. Cross-references
are made to sections that provide more detailed information.
A correctly designed HVAC control system can provide a
comfortable environment for occupants, optimize energy cost
and consumption, improve employee productivity, facilitate
efficient manufacturing, control smoke in the event of a fire,
and support the operation of computer and telecommunications
The Proportional, Integral and Derivative –PID– controller is the most widely used
controller in industrial applications. Since its first appearance in the late nineteen century,
it had attracted researchers from all over the world because of its simplicity and
the ability to provide an excellent control performance. The PID controller now represents
more than ninety percent of the controllers used in the market.
This book is a result of contributions and inspirations from many researchers worldwide
in the field of control engineering.
This document is a basic primer for use and deployment of the Service Control Engine products in the
data center. This document also provides a basis for further discussion of deep packet inspection (DPI)
techniques and products.
Technological advances in recent years have resulted in the development of the
programmable logic controller (PLC) and a consequential revolution of control engineering.
This book, an introduction to PLCs, aims to ease the tasks of practicing engineers coming
into contact with PLCs for the first time.
