About The Book Instrumentation And Control
Instrumentation and control plays a crucial role in the field of automation. This book presents an in-depth analysis of the essential concepts of the instrumentation and control systems.
The book introduces the students to instrumentation system and explains its designs, component selection and environmental effects. The statistical methods of data analysis and estimation of uncertainties are presented for an appropriate evaluation of the measured values. Dimensional metrology including the recent advancements is presented in an easy-to-grasp manner. The book also covers measurement of force, torque, shaft power and acceleration besides discussing signal conditioning and various display devices in a simple but effective style. Finally, it explains the time and frequency-measuring system, control theory and practice and various measurement-instruments as well as the nuclear techniques.
Designed for undergraduate and postgraduate students of electrical and instrumentation engineering, electrical and electronics engineering and mechanical engineering, this book will also be equally useful for the practising engineers and professionals.
