MODELING OF DYNAMIC SYSTEMS takes a unique, up-to-date approach to systems dynamics and related controls coverage for undergraduate students and practicing engineers. It focuses on the model development of engineering problems rather than response analysis and simulation once a model is available, though these are also covered. Linear graphing and bond graph approaches are both discussed, and computational tools are integrated thoughout. Electrical, mechanical, fluid, and thermal domains are covered, as are problems of multiple domains (mixed systems); the unified and integrated approaches taken are rapidly becoming the standard in the modeling of mechatronic engineering systems.

To maintain the efficiency and competitiveness of industrial products, it is important to rationalize manufacturing process with the aim to increase automation. Oftentimes this is achieved by the application of fluid systems, subdivided in hydraulik and pneumatic systems. With this book the author especially intends to introduce the reader in the principles of hydraulics. Reference is made on the book "Grundlagen der Hydraulik" published by the CARL HANSER-Verlag. This book is in the 7th-edition. The book presented here, offers the possibility to familiarize with the topic of hydraulic in a condensed manner by keeping the time effort limited. This particularly applies for students at universities and technical schools, but it is also a beneficial help for technicans in professional practice who want to refresh their skills in the field of hydraulics. The last chapter the reader will finds ten exercises with a detailed presentation of the solution approach by use of the "step by step"-method. Each step is commented to provide highest clarity of the solution approach.

Fluid power now a day’s becoming more popular and acceptable with improvements in various processes due to automation. Branches of fluid power Hydraulic & Pneumatic are gaining more importance in academic as well ass industry. Every diploma engineer must have basic knowledge abut different components of Hydraulic & Pneumatic with their construction working so they must be able to design simple systems as well as carry out maintenance of system. This book based on whole to part approach includes introduction to general layouts of Hydraulic & Pneumatic and then covering each components in detail. Mathematical part is purposefully avoided as it focuses mainly on working and intended for diploma students. Language of description is kept simple and only relevant information has been included. Main contents are Introduction to Hydraulic & Pneumatic Systems, Pumps and Actuators, Control Valves, Compressor, pneumatic components and accessories in fluid system, Oil hydraulic circuits and Pneumatic Circuits. Last part includes Hydro pneumatic applications, Simple Electro circuits, Remedies and fault detection in Pneumatic circuit Maintenance of Hydraulic and pneumatic circuits. Figure/sketches are provided with simple layout so that construction and working can be easily understood. I recommend this book as a text book for course Industrial fluid power or Industrial Hydraulics and Pneumatics mainly included in curriculum of Diploma in Mechanical, Automobile, production Engineering. Technical specifications of components such as pump, compressor, and valves are also mentioned in description like working pressure range, flow rate. It covers almost all the basic components used in fluid power system.

Automation is quickly becoming the standard across nearly every area of manufacturing. Pneumatic actuators play a very important role in modern automation systems, yet until now there has been no book that takes into account the recent progress not only in the pneumatic systems themselves but also in the integration of mechatronics, electronic control systems, and modern control algorithms with pneumatic actuating systems. Filling this void, Pneumatic Actuating Systems for Automatic Equipment: Structure and Design describes novel constructions along with many of the most commonly applied pneumatic actuating systems. Covering everything from underlying principles to mechanics, numerical modeling, parameter calculation, and control algorithms, this book uses real-world-tested designs to fully illustrate the systems and components presented. After an in-depth discussion of the various types of pneumatic actuators and electropneumatic control valves, the authors explain how to determine the system state variables and then examine open-loop and closed-loop pneumatic actuating systems in detail. They emphasize both the construction and dynamics of actuators to demonstrate and verify their properties before implementation. Pneumatic Actuating Systems for Automatic Equipment: Structure and Design offers a modern treatment of the subject along with applied knowledge using practical examples and exercises to highlight the concepts. It is an ideal resource to bring you up to date on this critical component of automation.
