Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is an excellent text for students in automatic control systems and is a useful reference for those working in the industry. It focuses on the functions of process control for industrial applications: sensing (measuring) process variables, communicating the sensed data to a central analyzer, deciding on a tactic to adjust the process, and actual adjustment of the process.

Design, operation, and maintenance procedures are described. Design procedures include the selection of hardware and software, as well as applications to improve production and reduce costs. Operational procedures include monitoring the presented and recorded data to confirm satisfactory process operation, monitoring the achievement of cost goals, and ensuring that backup equipment functions correctly. Maintenance procedures include calibration of equipment, monitoring the effects of the environment on the system, and repairing equipment.

Book News Annotation:

A textbook for one-semester lecture courses or self-study for students planning careers as measurement and control technicians, technologists, and engineers. Fraser (Humber College of Applied Arts and Technology) assumes a minimum mathematics background of algebra, trigonometry, plane geometry, and complex variables; electricity and electronics to the level of analyzing circuits for current, voltage drops, and impedances and using ammeters, voltmeters, and oscilloscopes to troubleshoot a circuit; and a basic expertise in using computer spreadsheets, word processors, and CAD programs. He includes laboratory exercises.

Synopsis:

This book is for readers learning automatic control systems, focusing on a classic process loop with its four major blocks: the measuring sensor block, the controller block, the process adjustment block, and the process block.<P>Design procedures include the selection of measuring sensors and control valves, illustrating to readers how sensors concentrate on the measurement of temperature, pressure, flow rate, level, and analysis of humidity and electrolytic conductivity. Chapter 1, Introduction to Process Measurement and Control, focuses on the process control loop using ISA symbols and block diagrams providing readers with easy reference of ISA symbols in typical Process and Instrumentation Diagrams. Question and problem sets end each chapter helps readers to review and reinforce material discussed. Suggested practical lab assignments are provided at end of each chapter.
