Practical Guide to Instrumentation, Automation and Robotics discusses in detail the concepts of instrumentation, process control, automation, robotics design and their applications in industry, and provides practical examples. The book adopts a life-cycle approach for discussing the different aspects of selection, process design, installation and commissioning of modern measurement and process control systems. The examples are taken from real-life scenarios under real-life conditions. Topics covered in the book include sensor technologies, process control theory and process control, automation systems and their applications, project-lifecycles for measurement and process control systems, applications in process safety, robotic systems and future technologies including data analysis, machine learning, and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
The book is dedicated to understanding the major process technology and process design requirements for the operation of a facility and the interaction of such systems with human operators. It is an indispensable practical guide for early career process engineers who enter the workforce and need to understand the fundamentals of measurement, process control, automation and robotics for designing efficient systems, secure and safer process controls, and maintaining integrity of the operating plant.
