This book provides a comprehensive view of what is needed to take advantage of the latest developments in smart and wireless temperature measurements and control strategies. A fundamental understanding of the capabilities of temperature sensors and the advances in wireless technology are provided. The effect of sensor types and installation on measurement accuracy and speed is detailed. Guidance is provided for making the commonly faced choice between thermocouples versus resistance temperature detectors. The temperature control requirements for various types of equipment are discussed. Control systems to meet specific objectives are provided. The appendices provide solutions to the exercises, data important for heat transfer, a unification of controller tuning methods, and equations to estimate process dynamics.
“This book is part of ISA’s (formerly “The Instrument Society of America”, later “The International Society for Measurement and Control” and now known as “The Instrument, Systems and Automation Society”) Independent Learning Modules on Fundamental Instruments and Techniques
A step-by-step approach for analyzing all of the factors that affect the control of temperature loops, including major sources of measurement errors, this book is packed with information on improving control of temperature loops. The book also focuses on the advantages and disadvantages of new methods for feedback control.
This book is designed as a self-study guide for both beginners and experienced practitioner who want to learn more about Temperature Control applications in the process industries.
The book is organized as follows:
– Measurement error.
– Temperature loop analysis.
– Vessels, desuperheaters, dryers, kilns, calciners, and other process equipment.
I am an Industrial Practitioner of Process Measurement & Control who has been working in the Oil & Gas Industry for more than 16 years as an Automation, Instrumentation, Process Safety and Process Control Engineer. I found this book to be an excellent refresher and self-study guide.”
