Mechatronic Systems Devices, Design, Control, Operation and Monitoring By Clarence W. de Silva

Mechatronic Systems Devices, Design, Control, Operation and Monitoring By Clarence W. de Silva

Section I Mechatronic Devices
Section II Communication Technologies
Section III Control Technologies
Section IV Mechatronic Design and Optimization
Section V Monitoring and Diagnosis

With individual chapters authored by distinguished professionals in their respective topics, this book
provides for engineers, designers, researchers, educators, and students, a convenient and up-to-date
reference with information on mechatronic devices and systems, including technologies and method
ologies for their analysis, design, control, monitoring, and diagnosis. The book consists of 29 chapters, grouped into 5 sections: mechatronic devices, communication technologies, control technologies, mechatronic design and optimization, and monitoring and diagnosis. Cross-referencing is used throughout to indicate other places in the book where further information on a particular topic is provided. In the book, equal emphasis is given to theory and practical application. The chapters are grouped into those covering mechatronic devices and applications, linking and communication within and outside a mechatronic systems, control of mechatronic systems, design of mechatronic devices and systems, and monitoring and fault diagnosis of mechatronic systems. Analytical formulations, numerical methods, design approaches, control techniques, and commercial tools are presented and illustrated using examples and case studies. Practical implementations, field applications, and experimentation are described and demonstrated. Mechatronics concerns synergistic and concurrent use of mechanics, electronics, computer engineering, and intelligent control systems in modeling, analyzing, designing, developing, and implementing smart electromechanical products. As the modern machinery and electromechanical devices are typically being controlled using analog and digital electronics and computers, the technologies of mechanical engineering in such a system can no longer be isolated from those of electronic and computer engineering. For example, in a robot systems or a micro-machine, mechanical components are integratedwith analog and digital electronic components to provide single functional units or products. Similarly, devices with embedded and integrated sensing, actuation, signal processing, and control have manypractical advantages. In the framework of mechatronics, a unified approach is taken to integrate different types of components and functions, both mechanical and electrical, in modeling, analysis, design, and implementation, with the objective of harmonious operation that meets a desired set of performance specifications. In the mechatronic approach, a multidomain (mixed) system consisting of subsystems that haveprimarily mechanical (including fluid and thermal) or primarily electrical (including electronic) character is treated using integrated engineering concepts. In particular, electromechanical analogies, consistent energy transfer (e.g., kinetic, potential, thermal, fluid, electrostatic, and electromagnetic energies) through energy ports and integrated design methodologies may be incorporated, resulting in benefits with regard to performance, efficiency, reliability, and cost.
