Instrumentation and Measurement presents the general principles of instrumentation processes. The book explains the theoretical analysis of physical phenomena used by standard sensors and transducers to transform a physical value into an electrical signal. The preprocessing of these signals through electronic circuits – amplification, signal filtering and analogue to digital conversion – are then detailed, in order to provide useful basic information. The focus of the book moves on from elementary data to general complex systems. Topics covered include instrumentation and measurement chains, sensor modeling, digital signal processing and diagnostic methods and the concept of smart sensors. A chapter is specifically devoted to microsystem design and applications. Numerous industrial examples are described in this book. 1. Measurement instrumentation – Mustapha Nadi. 2. General principles of sensors – François Lepoutre. 3. Physical principles of optical, thermal and mechanical sensors – François Lepoutre. 4. Analogue processing associated with sensors – Eduardo Santander and Bernard Journet. 5. Analogue filters – Paul Bildstein. 6. Real-time data acquisition and processing systems – Dominique Miller. 7. The contribution of microtechnologies – François Baillieu and Olivier Vancauwenberghe. 8. Instruments and measurement chains – Bernard Journet and Stéphane Poujouly. 9. Elaboration of models for the interaction between the sensor and its environment – Michel Lecollinet. 10. Representation and analysis of signals – Frédéric Truchetet, Cécile Durieu and Denis Prémel. 11. Multi-sensor systems: diagnostics and fusion – Patrice Aknin and Thierry Maurin. 12. Smart sensors – Michel Robert. Dominique Placko is Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan, France, where he teaches applied physics and electronic sciences. He is the writer of over 100 scientific papers in the past 25 years, including contributions to international journals and conferences. He has also published seven books and is co-inventor for 15 patents.
