Configurations of components are described in Chapters 13 through 16 and Chapters 17 and 21deal with inductors and transformers. Chapter 18 zeroes in on the control panel and Chapter 19 provides examples concerning various fields of electronics. Chapter 20 answers many of the questions Brocard was confronted with during the training sessions he has headed for the software.
