This title presents the general principles of instrumentationprocesses. It explains the theoretical analysis of physicalphenomena used by standard sensors and transducers to transform aphysical value into an electrical signal. The pre-processing ofthese signals through electronic circuits – amplification,signal filtering and analog-to-digital conversion – is thendetailed, in order to provide useful basic information.
Attention is then given to general complex systems. Topicscovered include instrumentation and measurement chains, sensormodeling, digital signal processing and diagnostic methods and theconcept of smart sensors, as well as microsystem design andapplications. Numerous industrial examples punctuate thediscussion, setting the subjects covered in the book in theirpractical context.
