About the Author

Dr. John Gardner is Director, CAES Energy Efficiency Research Institute at Boise State University. As a member of the City of Boise Climate Protection Committee and the Boise Public Works Commission, Dr. Gardner has worked on citywide programs to minimize energy consumption through better planning, incentives for efficient design and changes in city operations. He also is a member of the Idaho Power Integrated Resource Plan Advisory Committee, which helps the utility make decisions regarding the evolving needs of customers. In his current work through Boise State's Division of Research, Dr. Gardner deals directly with facilities managers, electric utility representatives, state officials and executives to plan for sustainability programs. As EERI moves forward, he will continue guiding energy research, environmental policy and campus sustainability efforts at Boise State. These efforts have exposed many potential research issues that could be explored and applied more broadly through EERI.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was pretty good as describing some methods for using MATLAB and Simulink to analyze and predict machine motion. There are other methods that I learned in school that I preferred but if you are new to the subject, this is pretty good. I'm not sure how up to date it is now.
