Mechatronics Fundamentals and Applications

File Size: 7.33 Mb

With individual chapters authored by professionals in their respective topics, this book provides a convenient and up-to-date reference with information on the latest developments of mechatronics for engineers, designers, researchers, educators, and students. The presented material includes methodologies that encompass modeling, analysis, design, control, monitoring, and diagnosis of mechatronic systems and state-of-the-art mechatronic systems and technologies. The book consists of 15 chapters, grouped into two sections: fundamentals and applications. Cross-referencing is used when necessary 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 cover fundamentals and applications of mechatronic devices and systems with specific treatment of related topics, including modeling and analytical formulations, simulation methods, design approaches, control techniques, practical tools, and cutting-edge systems and applications, illustrated using examples and case studies.

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 modern machinery and electromechanical devices are typically being controlled using analog and digital electronics and computers, the technologies of mechanical engineering in such systems can no longer be isolated from those of electronic and computer engineering. For example, in a robot system or a micro-machine, mechanical components are integrated with 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 many practical 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.
