Book Description

1 Aug 2004
In a clear and readable style, Bill Bolton addresses the basic principles of modern instrumentation and control systems, including examples of the latest devices, techniques and applications. Unlike the majority of books in this field, only a minimal prior knowledge of mathematical methods is assumed. The book focuses on providing a comprehensive introduction to the subject, with Laplace presented in a simple and easily accessible form, complimented by an outline of the mathematics that would be required to progress to more advanced levels of study. Taking a highly practical approach, Bill Bolton combines underpinning theory with numerous case studies and applications throughout, to enable the reader to apply the content directly to real-world engineering contexts. Coverage includes smart instrumentation, DAQ, crucial health and safety considerations, and practical issues such as noise reduction, maintenance and testing. An introduction to PLCs and ladder programming is incorporated in the text, as well as new information introducing the various software programmes used for simulation. Problems with a full answer section are also included, to aid the reader's self-assessment and learning, and a companion website (for lecturers only) at http://textbooks.elsevier.com features an Instructor's Manual including multiple choice questions, further assignments with detailed solutions, as well as additional teaching resources. The overall approach of this book makes it an ideal text for all introductory level undergraduate courses in control engineering and instrumentation. It is fully in line with latest syllabus requirements, and also covers, in full, the requirements of the Instrumentation & Control Principles and Control Systems & Automation units of the new Higher National Engineering syllabus from Edexcel.

Review

"The author has done a great job in condensing fundamental control theory into a practical text suitable for undergraduate studies in engineering.The book is interesting because the author not only details the fundamentals behind the operation but also shows how these devices are used in real applications." - IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, Dec. 2005 --IEEE Electrical

2.0 out of 5 stars No practical application. 1 Dec 2013
By Michael
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As usual all of Boltons textbook are loaded with theory!

Its okay if it was written by an author from the remotest part of the planet, but coming from the UK it should be more in-depth to application in the world of engineering. Not relevant to 1990s let alone 2010.

I recommend Boltons textbooks be discontinued.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good. 5 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good book that has great notes. Has some questions at the back of each chapter for reviewing as well. Some of the answers provided for the questions are wrong though. Could use some reviewing from the writers and publishers.
