INDL INSTRUMENTATION & CONTROL 3E
Tata McGraw-Hill Education
The third edition of the book on Industrial Instrumentation and Control is thoroughly revised and reorganized to address the changed curriculum and present needs of students and practicing engineers in the field of instrumentation and control. It now offers a comprehensive coverage of instrumentation and its practical implementation with an excellent balance of theoretical concepts and engineering practice. New to this edition Details the working principles, advantages, disadvantages and applications of each instrument. Extensive coverage of topics such as Electronic measurements and Automatic process control systems for industrial processes. Incorporates computer-aided measurement and control by providing coverage on microprocessor-based control such as programmable logic controllers (PLC's) and distributed digital control (DDC) systems. Orientation tables have been provided to help reader select right instruments for specific application. Three New chapters on Power and Energy Measurements, Sensors and Transducers, and Application of Control Systems have been added to cover entire gamut of industrial measurement. Topical organization has been done to make it easy for the students to visualize the logical flow of topics. The mathematics of the subject are minimized, and more emphasis is placed on examples that illustrate principles and concepts of great practical importance. Bridges the gap between theoretical learning and practical implementation of instrumentation and control concepts for process industries by means case studies. New to the edition : Three new chapters: Power and Energy Measurements (Chapter 4) Sensors and Transducers (Chapter 15) Application of Control Systems (Chapter 20) Detailed coverage of Microprocessor-based controls (Chapter 17) Three other chapters: Units and Standards of Measurements ; Electronic Measurements; Automatic Process Control Systems and Controllers have been thoroughly revised and updated Case studies have been discussed for bridging the gap between theoretical learning and practical implementation. This will help students to revisit the concepts and refresh their overall understanding. New sections on Transfer function, Differential equation and Laplace transform (Chapter 14). Topical organization has been done to make it easy for the students to visualize the logical flow of topics. Pedagogy: An extensive set of review questions (exercises, self check quizzes such as True/False, choosing appropriate answers, and fill-in the blanks) accompanies each chapter and reinforces student's ability to apply the concepts to real problems. Pedagogy includes: Examples : 58 Short Answer Questions: 218 MCQ's : 196 True False : 218 Fill in the blanks : 173 Total : 863
