Aimed at both the novice and expert in IT security and industrial control systems (ICS), this book will help readers gain a better understanding of protecting ICSs from electronic threats. Cyber security is getting much more attention and SCADA security (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) is a particularly important part of this field, as are Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Remote Terminal Units (RTUs), Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs)-and all the other, field controllers, sensors, and drives, emission controls, and that make up the intelligence of modern industrial buildings and facilities. This book will help the reader better understand what is industrial control system cyber security, why is it different than IT security, what has really happened to date, and what needs to be done. Loads of practical advice is offered on everything from clarity on current cyber-security systems and how they can be integrated into general IT systems, to how to conduct risk assessments and how to obtain certifications, to future trends in legislative and regulatory issues affecting industrial security.

The third edition of the book on Industrial Electronics and Control including Programmable Logic Controller is aimed at providing an explicit explanation of the mode of operation of different electronic power devices in circuits and systems that are in wide use today in modern industry for the control and conversion of electric power. The book strives to fulfil this need for a fundamental treatment that allows students to understand all aspects of circuit functions through its neatly-drawn illustrations and wave diagrams. Several colour diagrams are included to explain difficult circuits and waveforms. This approach will help students in assimilating the operation of power electronics circuits with more clarity. Same as in previous editions, the book commences with a discussion on rectifiers, differential amplifiers, operational amplifiers, multivibrators, timers and goes on to provide in-depth coverage of power devices and power electronics circuits such as silicon controlled rectifiers (SCRs), inverters, dual converters, choppers, cycloconverters and their applications in the control of ac/dc motors, and heating and welding processes. The book also presents an overview of the modern developments in the field of optoelectronics and fibre optics. Finally, the book ends with a discussion on Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). The book has an added advantage of multiple-choice questions, true/false statements, review questions and numerical problems at the end of each chapter, designed to reinforce the student’s understanding of the concepts and mathematical derivations introduced in the text. The book is intended as a textbook for polytechnic students pursuing courses in electrical engineering, electronics and communication engineering, and electronics and instrumentation engineering. This tailor-made book with its exhaustive explanations of circuit operations and its student-friendly approach should prove to be a boon to the students and teachers alike.

In a remarkably short time, electronics has penetrated almost every aspect of modern life and the pace of development in the field shows no sign of slackening. One of the first books to cover electronic inventions in depth, Electronic Inventions and Discoveries: Electronics from Its Earliest Beginnings to the Present Day, Fourth Edition traces the development of electronics from its earliest beginnings to the present day. Spanning a period of two and a half centuries, the book presents a mini-encyclopedia full of valuable information on practically all inventions in electronics from 1745 to 1996. This fourth edition has been brought up-to-date and made more attractive by a complete redesign while still maintaining the successful features of previous editions. The first nine chapters supply concise yet comprehensive histories of the main areas of the subject. Subsequent chapters provide a list of inventions by subject and succinct descriptions of each invention in date order with over 1,000 references. The book concludes with a list of acronyms and abbreviations, a list of books on inventions and inventors, and a comprehensive index. During his seventy years in the field, the author has collected a variety of published data to form an up-to-date systematic review of the major developments in electronics and the pattern of advances in electronic techniques. The book forms an essential source of reference to practicing engineers wishing to broaden their knowledge. Teachers and students who require a sound background and understanding of electronics will also find the book invaluable. Written in an easily understood largely nontechnical language, this fascinating and authoritative history of electronic developments will be of great interest to electronic hobbyists and general science readers.

Dynamics and Control of Switched Electronic Systems

Advanced Perspectives for Modeling, Simulation and Control of Power Converters

The increased efficiency and quality constraints imposed on electrical energy systems have inspired a renewed research interest in the study of formal approaches to the analysis and control of power electronics converters. Switched systems represent a useful framework for modeling these converters and the peculiarities of their operating conditions and control goals justify the specific classification of “switched electronic systems”. Indeed, idealized switched models of power converters introduce problems not commonly encountered when analyzing generic switched models or non-switched electrical networks. In that sense the analysis of switched electronic systems represents a source for new ideas and benchmarks for switched and hybrid systems generally. Dynamics and Control of Switched Electronic Systems draws on the expertise of an international group of expert contributors to give an overview of recent advances in the modeling, simulation and control of switched electronic systems. The reader is provided with a well-organized source of references and a mathematically-based report of the state of the art in analysis and design techniques for switched power converters. Intuitive language, realistic illustrative examples and numerical simulations help the reader to come to grips with the rigorous presentation of many promising directions of research such as: converter topologies and modulation techniques; continuous-time, discrete-time and hybrid models; modern control strategies for power converters; and challenges in numerical simulation. The guidance and information imparted in this text will be appreciated by engineers, and applied mathematicians working on system and circuit theory, control systems development, and electronic and energy conversion systems design.
