This book gives readers an understanding and appreciation of some of the theories behind control system elements and operations–without advanced math or calculus. It also presents some of the practical details of how elements of a control system are designed and operated–without the benefit of on-the-job experience.
Chapter topics include process control; analog and digital signal conditioning; thermal, mechanical, and optical sensors; controller principles; and control loop characteristics. For those in the industry who will need to design the elements of a control system from a practical, working perspective, and comprehend how these elements affect overall system operation and tuning.
