Overview of Industrial Process Automation
- K. Sharma, International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore, India
Man-made or industrial processes, localised or geographically distributed, need be automated in order to ensure they produce quality, consistent, and cost-effective goods or services. Automation systems for these processes broadly consist of instrumentation, control, human interface, and communication subsystems.
This book introduces the basics of philosophy, technology, terminology, and practices of modern automation systems with simple illustrations and examples.
