About the Book

'Electrical and Electronic Measurement and Instrumentation' is one of the core subjects taught to Electrical, Electronic and Instrumentation students at B.Tech and other equivalent levels. The content of this book has been prepared after consulting the syllabuses of a large number of Indian universities. Although books are available on this subject, it was felt necessary to prepare the one that exactly responds to the students' learning needs and to create their interest in this subject. Thus, the presentation here has been especially made simple and easy to understand.
