Description

Control System Design Guide, 3E will help engineers to apply control theory to practical systems using their PC. This book provides an intuitive approach to controls, avoiding unnecessary mathematics and emphasizing key concepts with more than a dozen control system models. Whether readers are just starting to use controllers or have years of experience, this book will help them improve their machines and processes.

Key Features

  • Teaches controls with an intuitive approach, avoiding unnecessary mathematics
  • Key topics are demonstrated with realistic models of control systems
  • All models written in Visual ModelQ, a full graphical simulation environment available freely via the internet
  • New material on OBSERVERS explained using practical applications
  • Explains how to model machines and processes, including how to measure working equipment; describes many nonlinear behaviours seen in industrial control systems
  • Electronic motion control, including details of how motors and motor feedback devices work, causes and cures of mechanical resonance, and how position loops work

Readership

Electrical and mechanical engineers in control, systems, and robotics and electronics hobbyists

About the Authors

George Ellis

George Ellis has worked in product development for 35 years. He first experienced the concept of continuous improvement two decades ago through the Danaher Corporation, one of the world’s foremost lean thinking companies. Danaher transformed itself in the 1980s, modeling its Danaher Business System (DBS) on the Toyota Production System. Ellis has had numerous leadership roles at Danaher, including Vice President of Global Engineering for X-Rite from 2015 to 2018. In 2019, Ellis joined Envista Holdings Corporation, a new spin-off from Danaher for the dental industry, as Vice President of Innovation. There he spends every day immersed in lean knowledge work, deploying, improving, and sustaining new product development workflows in EBS, Envista’s brand of lean knowledge. He also wrote Project Management for Product Development, Control System Design Guide (4th edition), and Observers in Control Systems, all from Elsevier.
