** About the book** The second edition of the highly successful text is intended for use as an introductory course or a second course in Instrumentation. The reviewers comments on the first edition helped refine and crystalise related material leading to the reorganisation of chapters and addition of:
l Software-controlled measurements
l Time interval measurement when the two events occur arbitrarily, and to indicate the order of occurrence, and a practical set up for the time interval measurement
l Multi-phase sequence indicator
l Decibel meter
l Input circuitry of a frequency counter
l Measurement of low-frequencies in a narrow band
l Basics of ac bridges
l Quality and dissipation factor measurement by phase compensation technique
l Impedance measurement in the Cartesian coordinate form
l Worked examples provided to illustrate the concepts
l Unsolved problems to help students develop skills in using theory |
