Fundamentals of Measurement Transducers and Synchronizers
In Fundamentals of Measurement Transducers and Synchronizers, you'll learn ...
- Common transducer characteristics and their benefits relative to discrete measuring devices
- How transducer accuracy is impacted by influence factors
- Common features of measurement centers
- The two types of synchronizers and how they function
The precise measurement of the voltage, current or other power system parameters is a requirement for any automation and control process, ranging from automatic closed-loop control to the information sampling for statistical needs. Measurement of these quantities can be achieved in a few different ways, including the application of direct-reading devices as well as electrical measuring transducers. There is a wide range of measurement instruments that are used to gather information and convert it into information that can be used by the operator. Typically, the instruments are classified depending on possibility for local or remote application.
This course is suitable for electrical engineers with a desire to understand basic power system measurement techniques and instrument operation principles. Presented details cover issues related to transducer characteristics and their inputs and outputs, instrument accuracy, transducer selection, tariff metering, synchronizers and disturbance recorders.
