Aim of the Unit:
• • • To introduce students to fundamentals of instrumentation, methods of common measurements in marine and process industries, and Australian standard graphical symbols used in instrumentation and process control engineering. To provide students with basic control theory, knowledge and understanding of control systems and their components and performance. To introduce students to control applications in marine and offshore industries.

Learning Outcomes:
Upon the successful completion of this subject, students should be able to: 1. List variables measured and/or controlled in a typical measuring system or a control system. 2. Describe the methods of measuring temperature, pressure, velocity, vessel position and speed, acceleration, force, level, viscosity and density. 3. Explain Australian standard graphical symbols for instrumentation and process control engineering and apply them in understanding and drawing schematic diagrams of instrumentation and process control systems. 4. Describe methods used to represent a dynamic system. 5. Describe methods used in automatic control systems to reduce steady state error and deviation during a disturbance. 6. Describe linear first-order and second-order measuring and control systems, including PID control systems. 7. Explain the stability of control systems. 8. Describe automatic control systems, which are common in the marine and offshore industries. 9. Use MATLAB/Simulink to perform basic technical computation to analysis simple measuring and control systems.
