## Applied industrial control: an introductionThis book is much more than a standard control text and aims to provide a bridge between the theory taught in academic institutions and the pragmatic practice of industrial control. Currently the microprocessor revolution is having a major impact on automatic control and instrumentation practice. A significant part of the book is devoted to microprocessors and their use in the control context. The book is essentially divided into three parts covering (1) the hardware and software aspects of microprocessors; (2) control algorithms which can be used in the industrial context and (3) the technology of measurement and actuation and how it is being modified by the introduction of microprocessors. Each chapter contains numerous worked examples and exercises. Uses SI Units |
