Arc welding is one of the key tactics in industrial manufacturing, with welders the use of two varieties of processes fuel metallic arc welding (GMAW) and gasoline tungsten arc welding (GTAW). This new ebook affords a survey orientated account of the modeling, sensing, and automated manage of the GMAW manner. It is Providing an overview of a variety of topics, this book looks at the classification of various welding processes; the modeling aspects of GMAW; physics of welding; metal transfer characteristics; weld pool geometry; process voltages and variables; power supplies; sensing (sensors for arc length, weld penetration control, weld pool geometry, using optical and intelligent sensors control techniques of PI, PID, multivariable control, adaptive control, and intelligent control. Finally, the book illustrates a case study.
