Overview

Once again Owen Bishop has produced a concise, readable text to introduce a wide range of students, technicians and professionals to an important area of electronics. Control is a highly mathematical subject, but here maths is kept to a minimum, with flow charts to illustrate principles and techniques instead of equations.

Cutting edge topics such as microcontrollers, neural networks and fuzzy control are all here, making this an ideal refresher course for those working in industry. Basic principles, control algorithms and hardwired control systems are also fully covered so the resulting book is a comprehensive text and well suited for college courses or background reading for university students.

The text is supported by questions under the headings Keeping Up and Test Your Knowledge so that the reader can develop a sound understanding and the ability to apply the techniques they are learning. These features are particularly useful for independent study or courses with limited contact time.

Owen Bishop is one of the world's leading electronics authors, with a loyal following among electronics enthusiasts and an established reputation as a textbook author.

A practical approach with a minimum of maths
Ideal for self-study or reference by technicians/professionals
Suitable for FE course adoptions and HE background reading
