The introduction of DCSs and SCADA allowed easy interconnection and re-configuration of plant controls such as cascaded loops and interlocks, and easy interfacing with other production computer systems.

In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero. Industrial instrumentation Module IV. Smart sensors: Need for pH measurement The pH of a solution is a measure of the molar concentration of hydrogen ions in the solution and as such is a measure of the acidity or basicity of the solution.
The letters pH stand for "power of hydrogen" and the numerical value is defined as the negative base 10 logarithm of the molar concentration of hydrogen ions. We say that vinegar and lemon juice taste sour and that soap water tastes bitter. This characteristic of these liquids and the marked degree of sour or bitter is indicated by the pH value. The significance of the pH value is today known to a great portion of our population alone through the fact that it is accepted that the pH value of swimming-pool water has to be kept within certain limits.
The food we eat contains a lot of water and our drinks are nothing else than coloured and flavoured water, and this water can be either sour or bitter; or in other words, it will have a certain pH value.
This again reduced the number and amount of time process operators were needed to walk around the units. The most standard pneumatic signal level used during these years was psig. Process control of large industrial plants has evolved through many stages. Initially, control would be from panels local to the process plant.
However this required a large manpower resource to attend to these dispersed panels, and there was no overall view of the process. The next logical development was the transmission of all plant measurements to a permanently-manned central control room. Effectively this was the centralisation of all the localised panels, with the advantages of lower manning levels and easier overview of the process.
Often the controllers were behind the control room panels, and all automatic and manual control outputs were transmitted back to plant. However, whilst providing a central control focus, this arrangement was inflexible as each control loop had its own controller hardware, and continual operator movement within the control room was required to view different parts of the process.
These could be distributed around plant, and communicate with the graphic display in the control room or rooms. The distributed control concept was born. The introduction of DCSs and SCADA allowed easy interconnection and re-configuration of plant controls such as cascaded loops and interlocks, and easy interfacing with other production computer systems.
It enabled sophisticated alarm handling, introduced automatic event logging, removed the need for physical records such as chart recorders, allowed the control racks to be networked and thereby located locally to plant to reduce cabling runs, and provided high level overviews of plant status and production levels. In some cases the sensor is a very minor element of the mechanism. Under most circumstances neither would be called instrumentation, but when used to measure the elapsed time of a race and to document the winner at the finish line, both would be called instrumentation.
A very simple example of an instrumentation system is a mechanical thermostat , used to control a household furnace and thus to control room temperature.
A typical unit senses temperature with a bi-metallic strip. It displays temperature by a needle on the free end of the strip. It activates the furnace by a mercury switch.
As the switch is rotated by the strip, the mercury makes physical and thus electrical contact between electrodes. Another example of an instrumentation system is a home security system. Communication is an inherent part of the design. Modern automobiles have complex instrumentation. In addition to displays of engine rotational speed and vehicle linear speed, there are also displays of battery voltage and current, fluid levels, fluid temperatures, distance traveled and feedbacks of various controls turn signals, parking brake, headlights, transmission position.
Cautions may be displayed for special problems fuel low, check engine, tire pressure low, door ajar, seat belt unfastened. Problems are recorded so they can be reported to diagnostic equipment. Navigation systems can provide voice commands to reach a destination.
Automotive instrumentation must be cheap and reliable over long periods in harsh environments. There may be independent airbag systems which contain sensors, logic and actuators. Anti-skid braking systems use sensors to control the brakes, while cruise control affects throttle position.
A wide variety of services can be provided via communication links as the OnStar system. Autonomous cars with exotic instrumentation have been demonstrated. Early aircraft had a few sensors. A magnetic compass provided a sense of direction. The displays to the pilot were as critical as the measurements.
A modern aircraft has a far more sophisticated suite of sensors and displays, which are embedded into avionics systems. The aircraft may contain inertial navigation systems , global positioning systems , weather radar , autopilots, and aircraft stabilization systems. Redundant sensors are used for reliability. A subset of the information may be transferred to a crash recorder to aid mishap investigations.
Modern pilot displays now include computer displays including head-up displays. Air traffic control radar is distributed instrumentation system.
The ground portion transmits an electromagnetic pulse and receives an echo at least. Aircraft carry transponders that transmit codes on reception of the pulse. The system displays aircraft map location, an identifier and optionally altitude.
The map location is based on sensed antenna direction and sensed time delay. The other information is embedded in the transponder transmission.
Laboratory equipment is available to measure many electrical and chemical quantities. Such a collection of equipment might be used to automate the testing of drinking water for pollutants. Instrumentation engineering is the engineering specialization focused on the principle and operation of measuring instruments that are used in design and configuration of automated systems in electrical, pneumatic domains etc and the control of quantities being measured.
They typically work for industries with automated processes, such as chemical or manufacturing plants, with the goal of improving system productivity , reliability, safety, optimization and stability. To control the parameters in a process or in a particular system, devices such as microprocessors, microcontrollers or PLCs are used, but their ultimate aim is to control the parameters of a system.
Instrumentation engineering is loosely defined because the required tasks are very domain dependent. An expert in the biomedical instrumentation of laboratory rats has very different concerns than the expert in rocket instrumentation.
Common concerns of both are the selection of appropriate sensors based on size, weight, cost, reliability, accuracy, longevity, environmental robustness and frequency response. Some sensors are literally fired in artillery shells.
Others sense thermonuclear explosions until destroyed. Invariably sensor data must be recorded, transmitted or displayed. Recording rates and capacities vary enormously. Transmission can be trivial or can be clandestine, encrypted and low-power in the presence of jamming. Displays can be trivially simple or can require consultation with human factors experts. Control system design varies from trivial to a separate specialty. Instrumentation engineers are responsible for integrating the sensors with the recorders, transmitters, displays or control systems, and producing the Piping and instrumentation diagram for the process.
They may design or specify installation, wiring and signal conditioning. They may be responsible for calibration, testing and maintenance of the system. In a research environment it is common for subject matter experts to have substantial instrumentation system expertise.
An astronomer knows the structure of the universe and a great deal about telescopes - optics, pointing and cameras or other sensing elements. That often includes the hard-won knowledge of the operational procedures that provide the best results. For example, an astronomer is often knowledgeable of techniques to minimize temperature gradients that cause air turbulence within the telescope.
Instrumentation technologists, technicians and mechanics specialize in troubleshooting, repairing and maintaining instruments and instrumentation systems. HART - Data signalling often overlaid on a current loop. Foundation Fieldbus - Data signalling.
