Sensors and instrumentation

  • Louis C. Westphal
Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 635)


In this book we choose to work from the process back to the controller on a system such as is indicated abstractly in Figure 3.1 and more specifically in Figure 3.2. The immediate connections to the process are the sensors that measure the state of the process and the actuators that influence the control elements to adjust the process.
