Sensors and Actuators in Mechatronics: Design and Applications

CRC Press
Free sample

From large-scale industrial systems to components in consumer applications, mechatronics has woven itself into the very fabric of modern technology. Among the most important elements of mechatronic systems are electromagnetic sensors and electromechanical actuators. Cultivated over years of industrial and research experience, Sensors and Actuators in Mechatronics: Design and Applications builds a practical understanding of the features and functions of various electromagnetic and electromechanical devices necessary to meet specific industrial requirements.

This work focuses on various components that receive less attention in the available literature, such as magnetic sensors, linear and latching solenoid actuators, stepper motors, rotary actuators, and other special magnetic devices including magnetic valves and heart pumps. Each chapter follows a consistent format, working from theory to design, applications, and numerical problems and solutions. Although the crux of the coverage is design and application, the author also discusses optimization and testing, introduces magnetic materials, and shares his enlightened perspective on the social and business aspects of developing world-class technologies. Examples from mainly the automotive industry illustrate the wide variety of mechatronic devices presented.

Providing a complete picture from conception to completion, Sensors and Actuators in Mechatronics: Design and Applications places critical tools in the hands of any researcher or engineer seeking to develop innovative mechatronic systems.

Recent trends in engineering show increased emphasis on integrated analysis, design, and control of advanced electromechanical systems, and their scope continues to expand. Mechatronics-a breakthrough concept-has evolved to attack, integrate, and solve a variety of emerging problems in engineering, and there appears to be no end to its application. It has become essential for all engineers to understand its basic theoretical standpoints and practical applications.

Electromechanical Systems, Electric Machines, and Applied Mechatronics presents a unique combination of traditional engineering topics and the latest technologies, integrated to stimulate new advances in the analysis and design of state-of-the-art electromechanical systems. With a focus on numerical and analytical methods, the author develops the rigorous theory of electromechanical systems and helps build problem-solving skills. He also stresses simulation as a critical aspect of developing and prototyping advanced systems. He uses the MATLABTM environment for his examples and includes a MATLABTM diskette with the book, thus providing a solid introduction to this standard engineering tool.

Readable, interesting, and accessible, Electromechanical Systems, Electric Machines, and Applied Mechatronics develops a thorough understanding of the integrated perspectives in the design and analysis of electromechanical systems. It covers the basic concepts in mechatronics, and with numerous worked examples, prepares the reader to use the results in engineering practice. Readers who master this book will know what they are doing, why they are doing it, and how to do it.
This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the principles and applications of quantum mechanics with equal emphasis on concept building and problem solving. The book follows an integrated approach to expose the students to applications of quantum mechanics in both physics and chemistry streams. A chapter is devoted to biological applications as well, to evince the interest of the students pursuing courses in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics. Such unique organization of the book makes it suitable for both Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Chemistry courses, where the common areas like molecular structure and spectroscopy are emphasized. The book, in its second edition, continues to serve as an ideal textbook for the first-year postgraduate students of both physics and chemistry as well as for senior undergraduate students pursuing honours courses in these disciplines. It has been thoroughly revised and enlarged with the introduction of a new chapter on “Quantum Statistics and Planck's Law of Black-Body Radiation”, some important sections in various chapters and more worked-out examples. The book helps students learn difficult concepts of quantum mechanics with simpler mathematics and intuitive language, but without sacrificing rigour. It has informal classroom type approach suitable for self-learning. Key Features • Gives about 200 worked-out examples and chapter-end problems with hints and answers related to different areas of modern science including biology. • Highlights important technological developments based on Quantum Mechanics, such as electron microscope, scanning tunnelling microscope, lasers, Raman spectroscopy and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR). • Provides adequate number of illustrations. • Includes detailed mathematical derivations separately in Appendices for a more rigorous approach.
