Intended primarily for undergraduate and postgraduate Read more This book, now in its second edition, presents in a comprehensive manner the fundamentals of computer-based control of industrial processes. The book begins with a thorough introduction to automation--its history, utility and the current scenario. It then moves on to discuss in detail the techniques, components, subsystems and system architectures relevant to process control. The control techniques covered include classical controls as well as newer controls such as model-based adaptive control, self-tuning control, expert systems and fuzzy logic control. The components consist of sensors and actuators of various types.

It can be said that such industry uses application of programmable logic controller to control the all the equipments involved in industrial process. PLC stands for Programmable Logic Controller is a certain computer device that offers the operator with some exceptional features such as sequence controllers like timers and counters.
Surprisingly, the application of programmable logic controller is not only used in industrial company, but also in some home utensils such as washing machines, traffic signs or elevators. The widely used of this control system leads some of the manufacturers launch different type of PLC in the market. The Parts Of PLC The application of programmable logic controller helps the operator to monitor the work of the machines through the sensors integrated in the system. In PLC, the processor is in charge of processing the data by performing the appropriate computation that is latter displayed in the form of proper output.
The input and output module consists of two types namely digital and analog. Automobile industry, electricity industry are the examples that function the application of programmable logic controller to run the machines.
Apart from those mentioned industries, glass industry is also use PLC to flattening the glasses and so on. Besides that, the cement industry also applies the PLC to mix the materials and to make sure that all the output is in best quality.
PLC Programmable Logic Controller is kind of device that is not only found in industrial company, but also in some civil applications. The application of programmable logic controller helps the operator to run all the machines with no great efforts. Besides, the application of programmable logic controller involves some cycles from inputting the data until producing the output that run the machine.
