This book contains a selection of papers and articles in instrumentation previously pub≠ lished in technical periodicals and journals of learned societies. Our selection has been made to illustrate aspects of current practice and applications of instrumentation. The book does not attempt to be encyclopaedic in its coverage of the subject, but to provide some examples of general transduction techniques, of the sensing of particular measurands, of components of instrumentation systems and of instrumentation practice in two very different environments, the food industry and the nuclear power industry. We have made the selection particularly to provide papers appropriate to the study of the Open University course T292 Instrumentation. The papers have been chosen so that the book covers a wide spectrum of instrumentation techniques. Because of this, the book should be of value not only to students of instrumen≠ tation, but also to practising engineers and scientists wishing to glean ideas from areas of instrumentation outside their own fields of expertise. In recent years instrumentation has emerged as a discipline in its own right rather than as an adjunct to traditional science and engineering disciplines. This development has been driven partly by the needs of industries for new and improved sensing techniques, and partly by new technological developments such as microprocessors, optical fibres and in≠ tegrated silicon sensors which are revolutionising sensing and signal processing practice.

Instrumentation holds a central position in engineering training, thanks to the continued advance of sensor technology and industry's demand for increasing sophistication in measurement and control systems. More than ever students of instrumentation needs to understand the practical problems which affect the implemetation of sensing and measuring devices -knowledge of the instruments themselves is no guarantee that they can be successfully installed in any given system. This book shows how instruments can be put to optimun use in a variety of environments. The topics covered include general transduction techniques and sensing of various measurands, detailed analysis of calibration and feedback. Two case studies discuss some current practices in the food and nuclear power industries. This book should be of interest to second and third year electrical engineering students taking courses in instrumentation.
