Combines the theory and the practice of applied digital control This book presents the theory and application of microcontroller based automatic control systems. Microcontrollers are single-chip computers which can be used to control real-time systems. Low-cost, single chip and easy to program, they have traditionally been programmed using the assembly language of the target processor. Recent developments in this field mean that it is now possible to program these devices using high-level languages such as BASIC, PASCAL, or C. As a result, very complex control algorithms can be developed and implemented on the microcontrollers. Presenting a detailed treatment of how microcontrollers can be programmed and used in digital control applications, this book: * Introduces the basic principles of the theory of digital control systems. * Provides several working examples of real working mechanical, electrical and fluid systems. * Covers the implementation of control algorithms using microcontrollers. * Examines the advantages and disadvantages of various realization techniques. * Describes the use of MATLAB in the analysis and design of control systems. * Explains the sampling process, z-transforms, and the time response of discrete-time systems in detail. Practising engineers in industry involved with the design and implementation of computer control systems will find Microcontroller Based Applied Digital Control an invaluable resource. In addition, researchers and students in control engineering and electrical engineering will find this book an excellent research tool.

Intelligent seonsors are revolutionizing the world of system design in everything from sports cars to assembly lines. These new sensors have abilities that leave their predecessors in the dust! They not only measure parameters efficiently and precisely, but they also have the ability to enhance and interupt those measurements, thereby transforming raw data into truly useful information. Unlike many embedded systems books that confine themselves strictly to firmware and software, this book also delves into the supporting electronic hardware, providing the reader with a complete understanding of the issues involved when interfacing to specific types of sensor and offering insight into the real-world problems designers will face. The examples provide a complete, easily extensible code framework for sensor-based applications as well as basic support routines that are often ignored or treated superficially. The goal throughout is to make readers truly productive as quickly as possible while providing the thorough understanding necessary to design robust systems. Readers will gain in-depth, real-world design information that will help them be more productive and get up to speed on sensor design skills more quickly. The book provides designers and students a leg up in a relatively new design area, imparting knowledge about a new microcontroller that offers some of the functionality of a DSP chip. Quickly teaches the reader to design the new wave in sensor technology, "intelligent" sensors In-depth design techniques, real-world examples, detailed figures and usable code Application chapters thoroughly exploring temperature, pressure and load, and flow sensors
