Fundamentals of Electrical Control - 2nd Edition
by Clarence A. Phipps, 1998, ISBN: 0881733121

     Newly revised, this book offers the logic of design to startup, operation and maintenance, and all aspects of wiring, relay logic, programmable logic controllers, and a host of electrical control applications and challenges you'll encounter on the job.

A new chapter covers heat and enclosures including information on the creation of heat in electronic devices and how it can be dissipated.

Beginning with the basic principles of electrical logic, the author guides you through each step in the design of a sequencing logic system, including developing the schematic diagram, making a bill of material, and designing component wiring diagram.

You will learn the fundamentals of programmable logic controls (PLC's), including number in systems, basic memory structure, system addressing and the common instruction set.

The presentation takes you step by step through solving problems that require bailing circuits, sorting systems, and counting the relays, including encoding and decoding.

The contrast between digital and analog control systems is also fully examined. Case histories illustrate the principles covered. as well specific troubleshooting techniques.
