This course provides a comprehensive study of the instruments that are used to measure and control the processes of electricity power generation. The student is first exposed to an in-depth analysis of the processes of controlling the generation of electricity from tradition fuel sources. This is followed by a study of the instrumentation and control aspects of alternative form of electricity generation. Special emphasis is made to sensitize students to the environmental impact of these systems. Design ethics and design for safety are embedded in this course. A Case study of specific application of instruments in the control processes of power plants is an integral part of this course.
