Basic Electrical Laws

Ohm’s law (which should be familiar) is a very useful rule. Note that it only applies to resistive loads however. The impedance of other passive components may vary with (e.g.) frequency (e.g. capacitors) and many components do not obey this rule at all (diodes, transistors etc.). Resistance determines how much charge flows per second when …

Basics of Electrical. Instrumentation engineer must be thorough with electrical fundamentals.  What is … Charge? Charge is measured in coulombs and is the amount of “electricity” present (or flowing). Charge can be positive or negative. Like charges repel each other. Unlike charges attract each other. In the vicinity of a charge there is an electric …

Origin of instrumentation.

Developments in Instrumentation Engineering The origins of instrumentation can be traced back to ancient times when early civilizations used basic instruments to measure time, distance, and weight. For example, the ancient Egyptians used a simple water clock to measure time, while the Greeks developed the first odometer to measure distance. The development of modern instrumentation, …

What is Instrumentation?

Instrumentation Engineering Instrumentation engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with the design, development, installation, and maintenance of instruments and control systems used in industrial and manufacturing processes. It involves the use of sensors, transducers, and other electronic devices to measure and control various physical parameters such as temperature, pressure, flow rate, and level. …
