Control Systems Technology
Curtis D. Johnson, Heidar Malki
Control Systems Technology is a comprehensive text focused on the knowledge required by practitioners to both understand and evaluate an existing control system. The text also enables readers to devise and design new control system applications.

The text presents classical and digital control systems, emphasizing careful explanations of the concepts. Multiple examples and solutions illustrate the concepts and the operations required to solve problems. The use of computers to implement practical solutions to problems is also emphasized throughout the book.

Topics covered include:

* Introduction to Control Systems
* Laplace Transforms
* Constrol System Models
* Frequency Response Analysis
* State Space Analysis
* Introduction to Digital Control Systems
* Discrete Control Systems

Each chapter starts with an introductory section that explains the purpose of that chapter. There is also a summary that contains important points presented within the chapter. A set of review questions reinforces learning. Appendices on complex numbers and matrices will prove to be helpful and informative to readers, and solutions to select odd-numbered problems help readers assure themselves that they have a firm grasp on the subject matter.
Technician's Guide to Programmable Controllers
Richard Cox
One of the most popular books available today, Technician's Guide to Programmable Controllers, 4th Edition includes complete explanations, examples readers can relate to, plus a writing style well-suited to electrical students as well as journeyman and apprentice technicians, make.

Its systematic approach enables readers without prior knowledge to gain a comprehensive understanding of what a programmable logic controller is, how it works, plus how it is programmed and installed.

Numerous and varied troubleshooting techniques are also introduced, making this book a valuable reference for professional maintenance electricians and plant engineers.

Fully updated, the fourth edition now reflects use of personal computers for programming devices, including detailed programming information on both the Allen-Bradley SLC-500 and the MicroLogix family of programmable logic controllers. Supplemental information on logic gates has also been added to assist readers in gaining an understanding of programming and the symbols used.
Industrial Electronics
Applications for Programmable Controllers, Instrumentation and Process Control, and Electrical Machines and Motor Controls (3rd Edition)
Thomas E. Kissell
Based on the author's experience working with technicians directly on the factory floor in major industries, this handbook/reference covers all of the electronic technology found in modern industrial systems, going into the depth required to install, troubleshoot, and repair complex automation systems.

Each stand-alone (but cross-referenced) chapter explores either an entire system or individual circuits and components that are used over and over in a large variety of complex systems. Features a large number of figures, diagrams, and pictures, and typical "Job Assignment"s, with solutions.
