The inductance of a coil depends on the number of turns, diameter of the coils, the length of the coil, and the nature of the core. To get an accurate inductance measurement, the inductor must be tested under actual conditions with current flowing through the coil. 12 Capacitance Measurement A capacitor is basically consists of two conductors separated by a dielectric medium. The variable to be measured will cause an effect either by increasing the distance between two plates or by changing the dielectric constant [8, 9].

Classification of temperature sensor: • Contact type: – Mechanical Bimetal Thermal expansion magnetic – Electrical Thermocouple Resistance Thermistor Semiconductor • Noncontact – Radiation Pyrometer – Optical Pyrometer Temperature Scales: Two fixed points are defined for temperature scales. • ICE POINT: The lower fixed point or ice point is the temperature of ice, prepared from distilled water when melting under a pressure of 760 mm of Hg. • STEAM POINT: The upper fixed point or steam point is the temperature of steam from pure distilled water, boiling under a pressure of 760 mm of Hg.

Flow is usually monitored in open channels (gravity flow) and closed conduits (pressurized flow in completely closed pipes). 4 Classification of Sensors 45 Flow Q is the volume flowing through a mathematically precise determined cross section over a certain time unit. Q ¼ Volume=Time ¼ V=t A flow sensor is a device that measures the flow volume of water, pure water, compressed air, gas, drugs, steam, and similar liquids or gases. Flow sensors are of various types that each operates with different detection principles [6].
