Instrumentation and control

The safe and effective operation of process plant and power stations relies on automation. Instrumentation and control engineering spans the systems, operator consoles and human operators who oversee all phases of plant operation, from start-up to shut-down. The effectiveness of on-line analysers can mean significant operational benefits for users, and good analyser performance depends on careful specification and maintenance. Effective management of alarms is also critical to plant safety, as a number of high-profile incidents in recent decades has shown.

EEMUA is active right across the discipline in areas such as best practice for the maintenance of on-line analysers, frequently updated guidance on alarm management and human-computer interfaces, and best practice work on the electrical safety of instrument panels.
