This work presents a novel representation of energy and signal transformation in a measurement system, which is essentially a transducer conversion logic or language (TCL). Using two-port and three-port transducers as basic building blocks, it can be utilized to model any measurement system. It has the key features of object-orientation and consists of only text with very simple syntax. The TCL can be easily handled and processed by computers. This paper has demonstrated its use in description, classification, and computer-aided analysis and design of measuring instruments with some preliminary test results. It will find wide applications in modeling, analysis, design, and education in measurement, control, and information processing.
