Case Studies in Control: Putting Theory to Work by Stanko Strmčnik, Đani Juričić

By Stanko Strmčnik, Đani Juričić

Case stories in Control offers a framework to facilitate using complex keep watch over ideas in genuine platforms according to twenty years of study and over one hundred fifty winning functions for business end-users from quite a few backgrounds. In successive components the textual content ways the matter of placing the speculation to paintings from either ends, theoretical and functional. the 1st half starts off with a tension on strong regulate idea and the shaping of that concept to resolve specific cases of sensible difficulties. It emphasizes the necessity to determine via test even if a model-derived answer will practice appropriately actually. the second one half makes a speciality of actual commercial functions in keeping with the wishes and necessities of end-users. the following, the engineering technique is dominant yet with theoretical enter of various measure counting on the actual technique involved.

Following the illustrations of the development that may be made of both severe of the well known theory–practice divide, the textual content proceeds to a 3rd half on the topic of the advance of instruments that allow less complicated use of complicated tools, a necessity purely in part met by means of on hand advertisement products.

Each case examine represents a self-contained unit that exhibits an experimental software of a specific strategy, a realistic method to an business challenge or a toolkit that makes regulate layout and implementation more straightforward or extra effective. one of the functions offered are:

  • wastewater treatment;
  • manufacturing of electric vehicles ;
  • temperature keep watch over of blow moulding;
  • burn-protective clothing caliber overview; and
  • rapid prototyping.

Written by means of participants with a substantial checklist of industrially-applied study, Case reports in Control will motivate interplay among business practitioners and educational researchers and be of profit to either, supporting to make idea lifelike and useful implementation extra thorough and efficacious.

Advances in business Controlaims to file and inspire the move of expertise up to speed engineering. The swift improvement of regulate know-how has an impression on all components of the keep an eye on self-discipline. The sequence bargains a chance for researchers to offer a longer exposition of latest paintings in all features of business control.

Electrical safety : a guide to the causes and prevention of electrical hazards

This ebook explains the risks linked to electrical energy in its many varieties, together with electromagnetic radiation. It describes tools of lowering hazards to future health and to the surroundings, giving principles and codes of perform to be undefined. guidance also are given for using electric apparatus in specialized environments (such as destinations topic to explosive gases and flammable dusts), the guarding of computer instruments and the keep an eye on of earth currents.

8. The prior state of affairs was such that the quality control relied on manual assessment procedures. The implementation of the new system required a redesign of the organisation of work. Workers involved in manual quality assessment were no longer needed and were assigned to other positions (less laborious and routine). On the other hand, more qualified personnel were needed to run the new system. It is quite clear that the ties between organisation of work and control theory are not obvious and are rather weak.

Safety In numerous applications, such as in nuclear reactor control, the control of power networks, traffic control and the chemical process industries, safety stands at the forefront of system requirements. High reliability of components is essential for safety, as is hardware and software redundancy. Ensuring safe operation requires special design approaches on the functional level as well as on the level of HW and SW (see [33]) which guarantee that in the event of error or the failure of some components, the system achieves a safe state.

As a potential driver of progress, provided it is not too broad and deep. e. stakeholders, academia and industry. Intensified ties between the players, their networking, crossdisciplinary cooperation and re-shaped undergraduate and post-graduated curricula can contribute to keeping the gap at an “optimal size”. In that context, it might be very productive if control engineering is perceived more as an instance of systems engineering and less as merely the application of control theory. The chapters that follow provide cases that support such a view.
