More and more people who work in plants need to understand how data from the field is transmitted to the control room and even to Manufacturing Execution Systems located in head offices situated considerable distances from the plant. It is a technological marvel and this manual helps you to understand the flow of information and the various techniques involved in it.
This manual provides you with an understanding of the hazards involved in using electrical equipment in potentially explosive atmospheres. It is based on the international IEC79 series of standards that are now replacing the older national standards.
This manual introduces the basics of hazard study methods and includes training in risk assessment methods using FMEA and Fault Tree Analysis (FTA). It presents Hazops in the context of related plant and control system design activities.
This book is aimed at the private electrical installation designer. However, the topic HV design and installation could also be interpreted as possibly covering the electricity utility transmission and distribution sector (HV transmission and distribution network design) for which the HV design approach would be quite different, even though the technical fundamentals (and some of the technical standards such as AS 2067) are the same. This will not be the focus of this book.
This manual is suitable for the engineer, electrician, technician, craftsperson, operator and others who require practical, specialist knowledge for selecting and implementing flow measurement systems.
