Automated Manufacturing Systems with PLCs
by Hugh Jack
Number of pages: 860
This book has been designed for students with some knowledge of technology, including limited electricity, who wish to learn the discipline of practical control system design on commonly used hardware. To this end the book will use the Allen Bradley ControlLogix processors to allow depth. Although the chapters will focus on specific hardware, the techniques are portable to other PLCs. Whenever possible the IEC 61131 programming standards will be used to help in the use of other PLCs.

This series provides beginners with fundamental electrical and electronic concepts through self-study. The series is designed to give small amounts of information that can be easily digested before advancing further into the more complex material.
This is an introductory text about electric circuits. It covers the basics of electric circuit theory, circuit analysis, and touches on circuit design. It is a companion reference for a 1st year of an Electrical Engineering undergraduate curriculum.

This is a complete, yet compact, introductory survey text on the major topics in optimization. The material is written at the introductory level, assuming no more knowledge than high school algebra. Most concepts are developed from scratch.

In this work we will look at the interplay of physics and mathematics in terms of an example where the mathematics involved is at the college level. The example is the relation between elementary electric network theory and random walks.
