Few industries understand the importance of accurate and appropriate instrumentation as much as the power industry. Safety-critical control systems rely on the data provided so it is vital that instruments and sensors are installed and used correctly. This comprehensive volume examines, in detail, the types of instrumentation system that are available for all kinds of power station. Fossil fired, nuclear and hydroelectric plant are among those considered. Associated issues such as control rooms, computers, systems and management are also covered. The author has over forty years of experience in the electricity supply industry, and is well placed to describe the latest developments in this fast moving area. '..a valuable reference work for all engaged in power station practice.' Eur Ing F John Bindon - Energy World, November 1994 'To summarise, the book is well laid out and full of detailed references. Indexing and editing is of a high standard. It is an excellent book for basics...' - Control & Instrumentation, February 1994 'The highest recommendation for this book stems from the fact that information on instrumentation applications in all types of power stations, previously only found in numerous technical papers, is now available in this single volume.'
