Dynamic Behavior of Systems Under Computer Control

  • W. F. Stoecker
  • P. A. Stoecker


The subject of this book, as reflected in its title, is the control of thermal and mechanical systems. The controller to be used is of the computer type, and the overall objective is to learn the characteristics of computer controllers in order to apply them properly to these systems. The objective of Chapters 16 and 17 is to study the interface of the computer control and the thermal and mechanical system.
