Instrumentation and Control: Fundamentals and Applications
Chester L. Nachtigal
Wiley, May 17, 1990 - Technology & Engineering - 912 pages
As part of the ongoing Wiley Series in Mechanical Engineering, this edited volume serves as a complete reference and guide to the many facets of instrumentation and control engineering. Broad in coverage and scope, it provides practicing engineers with the latest data and activities taking place in the field. Will give you an idea of the depth and breadth of coverage as reflected in the variety of topics explored, including systems engineering concepts; instrument static analysis; grounding and cabling techniques; bridge transducers; position, velocity, acceleration; force; torque, pressure and temperature transducers; signal processing and transmission; control system performance and modification; number controllers for machine tools and robots; and state-space analysis for dynamic and control systems.
