Electrical And Electronic Measurements
| About The Book Electrical And Electronic Measurements
In this modern scientific world a thorough understanding of complex measurements and instruments is the need of the hour. This book provides a comprehensive coverage of the concepts and principles of measurements and instrumentation, and brings into focus the recent and significant developments in this field.
The book presents an exhaustive exposition of different types of measuring instruments and their applications in an easy-to-grasp manner. It presents even the minute details of various measurement techniques and calibration methods, which are the essential features of a measurement programme. The book elaborates on the theoretical background and practical knowledge of different measuring instruments to make the students accustomed to these devices. An in-depth coverage of topics makes the text useful to somewhat more advanced courses and its elaborated methodology will help students meet the challenges in their career.
This book is ideally suitable for undergraduate students (BE/B.Tech.) of Electrical, Electronics and Instrumentation and Control disciplines of engineering. It can be also used as reference book for the cable testing, testing of instruments transformers, testing of energy meters and measurement of physical variables.
KEY FEATURES :
Gives a number of chapter-end review questions and numerical problems for practice.
Includes plenty of diagrams to clarify the concepts.
Contains about 250 problems and 200 solved examples for the benefit of the students.
