Mechatronics has emerged as its own discipline over the past decade, yet no reference has lived up to the demands of being a working guide for designing and implementing the new generation of mechatronic systems. Uniting an international team of leading experts, Mechatronic Systems: Devices, Design, Control, Operation and Monitoring rises to the challenge of providing a practical, comprehensive, and detailed guide to the theory and application of modern mechatronics. Weaving the Multi-Domain Tapestry This book treats all components of the mechatronic system as a unified whole, combining mechanics, electronics, intelligent control, sensors, actuators, and communication networks through integrated design. Extensive cross-referencing lends this work a coherence not found in other books on mechatronics, which amount to little more than collections of papers. Real-World Guidance from the Experts Extensive examples and case studies take you effortlessly from theory to analysis, design, and application. Convenient snapshots in the form of tables, graphs, illustrations, and summaries give you immediate access to the information you need. Mechatronic Systems: Devices, Design, Control, Operation and Monitoring is a critical compendium of need-to-know information covering mechatronic devices, communication and control technologies, mechatronic design and optimization, and techniques for monitoring and diagnosis.

Representing an evolutionary leap, the integration of optical technologies into mechatronic systems adds a new dimension to an already multifaceted field. Optical elements enhance the functionality of mechatronics and in many cases introduce entirely new capabilities. Likewise, mechatronic elements bring the same synergistic effects to optical systems. However, most books focus on traditional mechatronics while only briefly discussing, or omitting completely, the characteristics of optomechatronic technology. Bringing together the fundamentals and underlying concepts, Optomechatronics provides a detailed introduction to this growing field. With emphasis on the importance of interdisciplinary, multiple-technology fusion, this book threads together the background, definition, and characteristics of the field with an integrated view of various disciplines, a system-oriented approach, and a combined view of the macro/micro worlds. It begins with an analysis of a variety of practical optomechatronic systems to identify the underlying concepts and features of each area composing the field. These systems include optics, machine vision, feedback control, and micro-opto-mechanical systems (MOEMS). From this platform, the author demonstrates how to fuse the optical, mechanical, electronic, and microprocessor elements to realize desired functionalities. Finally, the book examines whole optomechatronic systems comprising the components described in the previous section. Whether you are new to the field or have experience in a different engineering discipline, Optomechatronics supplies the necessary tools to harness the benefits that optical technologies bring to this important emerging area.

Completely revised and updated, Principles of Sustainable Energy Systems, Second Edition presents broad-based coverage of sustainable energy sources and systems. The book is designed as a text for undergraduate seniors and first-year graduate students. It focuses on renewable energy technologies, but also treats current trends such as the expanding use of natural gas from fracking and development of nuclear power. It covers the economics of sustainable energy, both from a traditional monetary as well as from an energy return on energy invested (EROI) perspective. The book provides complete and up-to-date coverage of all renewable technologies, including solar and wind power, biological processes such as anaerobic digestion and geothermal energy. The new edition also examines social issues such as food, water, population, global warming, and public policies of engineering concern. It discusses energy transition—the process by which renewable energy forms can effectively be introduced into existing energy systems to replace fossil fuels. See What’s New in the Second Edition: Extended treatment of the energy and social issues related to sustainable energy Analytic models of all energy systems in the current and future economy Thoroughly updated chapters on biomass, wind, transportation, and all types of solar power Treatment of energy return on energy invested (EROI) as a tool for understanding the sustainability of different types of resource conversion and efficiency projects Introduction of the System Advisor Model (SAM) software program, available from National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL), with examples and homework problems Coverage of current issues in transition engineering providing analytic tools that can reduce the risk of unsustainable fossil resource use Updates to all chapters on renewable energy technology engineering, in particular the chapters dealing with transportation, passive design, energy storage, ocean energy, and bioconversion Written by Frank Kreith and Susan Krumdieck, this updated version of a successful textbook takes a balanced approach that looks not only at sustainable energy sources, but also provides examples of energy storage, industrial process heat, and modern transportation. The authors take an analytical systems approach to energy engineering, rather than the more general and descriptive approach usually found in textbooks on this topic.

Due to the enormous impact of mechatronics systems, we encounter mechatronics and micromechatronic systems in our daily activities. Recent trends and novel technologies in engineering have increased the emphasis on integrated analysis, design, and control. This book examines motion devices (actuators, motors, transducers and sensors), power electronics, controllers, and electronic solutions with the main emphasis placed on high-performance mechatronic systems. Analysis, design, optimization, control, and implementation issues, as well as a variety of enabling mechatronic systems and devices, are also covered. The results extend from the scope of mechatronic systems to the modern hardware-software developments, utilizing enabling solutions and placing the integrated system perspectives in favor of consistent engineering solutions. Mechatronics and Control of Electromechanical Systems facilitates comprehensive studies and covers the design aspects of mechatronic systems with high-performance motion devices. By combining traditional engineering topics and subjects with the latest technologies and developments, new advances are stimulated in design of state-of-the-art mechatronic systems. This book provides a deep understanding of the engineering underpinnings of integrated technologies.
