Instrumentation and Control Systems addresses the basic principles of modern instrumentation and control systems, including examples of the latest devices, techniques and applications in a clear and readable style. Unlike the majority of books in this field, only a minimal prior knowledge of mathematical methods is assumed. The book focuses on providing a comprehensive introduction to the subject, with Laplace presented in a simple and easily accessible form, complimented by an outline of the mathematics that would be required to progress to more advanced levels of study. Taking a highly practical approach, the author combines underpinning theory with numerous case studies and applications throughout, to enable the reader to apply the content directly to real-world engineering contexts. Coverage includes smart instrumentation, DAQ, crucial health and safety considerations, and practical issues such as noise reduction, maintenance and testing. PLCs and ladder programming is incorporated in the text, as well as new information introducing the various software programs used for simulation. The overall approach of this book makes it an ideal text for all introductory level undergraduate courses in control engineering and instrumentation. It is fully in line with latest syllabus requirements, and also covers, in full, the requirements of the Instrumentation & Control Principles and Control Systems & Automation units of the new Higher National Engineering syllabus from Edexcel. Completely updated Assumes minimal prior mathematical knowledge Highly accessible student-centred text Includes an extensive collection of problems, case studies and applications, with a full set of answers at the back of the book Helps placing theory in real-world engineering contexts

This is a fully revised, new edition on the topic of instrumentation and control systems and their application to marine engineering for professional trainees studying Merchant Navy Marine Engineering Certificates of Competency (CoC) as well as Electrical/Marine Engineering undergraduate students. Providing generic technical and practical descriptions of the operation of instrumentation and control devices and systems, this volume also contains mathematic analysis where appropriate. Addressing this subject area, the domain of Instrumentation Engineers/Technicians as well as Control Engineers, and covering established processes and protocols and extensive developing technology, this textbook is written with the marine engineer in mind, particularly those studying Engineering Knowledge. The content ranges from simple measurement devices, through signal conditioning and digitisation to highly sophisticated automated control and instrumentation systems. It also includes a brand new section on electrical equipment in hazardous areas detailing hazards, gas groups, temperature classifications and types of protection including increased and intrinsic safety and encapsulation, and up-to-date material on the new generation of Liquified Natural Gas carriers, SMART sensors and protocols, as well as computer based systems.

This second edition revises and updates the award-winning 2004 publication, incorporating improvements suggested by readers and to reflect subsequent changes in industry practice. It provides the knowledge needed to understand and develop the documents and symbols that define a modern industrial measurement and control system. In addition, it uses industry standards, especially ANSI/ISA-5.1-2009 - Instrumentation Symbols and Identification, to define and describe the symbol based "language" that identifies measurement and control devices. The control systems documentation addressed within includes process flow diagrams, piping and instrumentation diagrams, instrument indexes and data bases, specification forms, logic diagrams, loop diagrams, installation details and location plans. The purpose and content of these documents, as well as options with regard to the information presented, are discussed in detail. Information is presented in the timeline of a typical design and engineering project. The sequence serves to show how the documents evolve and how they are interrelated. The real-world obligation of control systems documentation to support interdisciplinary coordination during design, to provide sufficient detail to bid and purchase components and services and to support all construction work is addressed. The critical requirement that these drawings and data present critical information for on-going maintenance work is integral to this presentation.
