Instrumentation and control system is the heart of all processing industries. No process can run without the aid of instrumentation. Therefore, sometimes it is said that instruments are eyes of process through which a process operators visualize the process behaviour. Instrumentation and control concepts have undergone a drastic change over the past few years. The book is meant for the graduate level course of Instrumentation and Process Control (Electrical & Electronics and Instrumentation & Control disciplines). The topics have been divided in 8 chapters. The first three are devoted to Transducers. In these chapters, stress has been given on Transducer Signal Selection, Pneumatic Transmitters, Smart Transmitters, Special Class Thermocouple, Nucleonic Level Gage, Electronic Level Gage & others. In the chapter on Telemetry, pneumatic transmissions have been added in addition to usual topics. In the chapter Process Control, three element control systems have been described through examples of Boiler Drum Level Control. And lastly in Recent Developments & Microprocessor Based Instrumentation System, development of PLC and distributed control system and instrumentation communication protocol have been described in greater detail with suitable examples. The book is a perfect match of instruments that are still in use and which have been recently developed.

Instrumentation in Process Control details the elements of transducers utilized in doing various measurements. The book also deals with the problems in data gathering from physical processes. The text also examines the different schemes of relaying or showing the data and compares the many ways by which data could be processed. The first chapter opens with an introduction to the study; it then proceeds to talk about primary measurements and notes the importance of selecting the transducer, having precision in measurements, and having a properly designed system. This chapter also presents various tips with regards to a better measurement and data handling. Chapter 2 is about interpreting a transducer's performance, while the next several chapters revolve around measurements. Measurements discussed include those for temperature, pressure, liquid density, displacement, and flow. The book highlights in Chapter 8 the tachometry and provides in Chapters 9 and 10 the lessons on analogue-to-digital conversions. The last three chapters are reserved for computing corrections, data transmission, and digital control techniques, including the fundamentals of these concepts. The text is a great reference and beneficial for students, teachers, researchers, and casual readers, as the book offers a wide information on instrumentation.

Instrumentation technicians work on pneumatics, electronic instruments, digital logic devices and computer-based process controls. Because so much of their work involves computerized devices, they need an extensive knowledge of electronics, and most have degrees in electronics technology. Most textbooks in this area are written for four year institutions and lack the practical flavor that is needed in technical schools or community colleges. Designed as a text for use in community colleges or vocational schools, this up to date text is unsurpassed in its treatment of such subjects as: instruments and parameters, electrical components(both analog and digital) various types of actuators and regulators, plumbing and instrumentation diagrams and Operation of process controllers.

Applied Technology and Instrumentation for Process Control presents the complex technologies of different manufacturing processes and the control instrumentation used. The large variety of processes prohibits covering more than a few. Carefully selected and diverse, but representative, examples show how fundamentally basic simpler elements or techniques can be coordinated and expanded into more control systems. This book is suitable for all levels of practitioners and engineers in related industries or applications.
