Concepts and Quality of Measurement.
of Analogue and Digital systems :
static and dynamic characteristics, First order, Second order instrumentation
systems, responses to step, ramp, pulse, sine signals, System noise and signal
to noise ratio.
for Process Measurement :
Measurement of temperature, pressure, force, torque, vibrations, velocity, flow,
level, pH, humidity, performance characteristics and selection for a given
Conditioning : Systems
such as Chopper stabilised amplifier, Instrumentation amplifier and selection
for particular applications. Modulators and Demodulators. Active filters, design
of 1st and 2nd order Butterworth filters, data transmission and
telemetry ( only conceptual treatment ).
Controllers : Basics of
feedback control systems and applications to measurement and control. Control
actions - two position controllers, Floating controllers. Proportional,
Derivative and Integral controller, Composite controllers such as Proportional
Integral, Proportional Integral Differential ( PID ) controllers. Analysis and
implementation of electronic controllers.
Data Acquisition Systems : Components of Analogue and Digital Acquisition system. Microprocessor and Computer based instrumentation system ( block diagram treatment ).
