Electricity is a form of energy that involves the flow of electrons. All matter is made up of atoms, which have a center called the nucleus. The nucleus contains positively charged particles called protons and uncharged particles called neutrons. The nucleus of an atom is surrounded by negatively charged particles called electrons.
About the Book
Tested in this class, this book will familiarize you with the electricity and electronics used in the modern world of measurement and control. This book describes procedures for measuring electrical quantities safely and accurately. A long with an understanding of digital and analog meters, bridges, power supplies, solid-state circuits, oscilloscopes, and analog-to-digital conversion, the reader will acquire a vocabulary of measurement.
Because this book is about operation, not design, an easy-to-understand format is more appropriate than absolute technical perfection. Wherever possible, applications are used to illustrate the topics discussed.
This book is based on materials that the authors have used successfully in college and in ISA short course study classes. The success of these materials is due to their practicality and the solicitation of suggestions for improvement from students. Basic Electricity and Electronics for Control will increase the success rate of students in technical high schools and vocational schools where basic technician training takes place.
