Introduction to Control System Technology
Introduction to Control System Technology, Sixth Edition, is both a textbook on control system technology and a reference that engineers and technicians will want in their personal libraries. The two main objectives are: 1. To help students master the concepts and language of control; 2. To help engineers and technicians analyze and design control systems. Features include the use of analogies for modeling electrical, fluid flow, thermal, and mechanical components. The book also features a disk with programs used in the text.
