For a scattered group of partial sources, ASCO valves has some good info on Cv calculations, Omega Engineering has lots of good temperature measurement background info, and Partlow controllers has some good PID loop explanations. I don't know off hand of a text that covers everything, but a search on something like "controls theory" would likely turn up a lot.

(I have no connection with any of these companies other than having read some of their literature.)

What else besides Cv? I could find a book or two with Cv calcs on my bookshelf, but what else would you include with general instrument related calculations?

This may be repetition to many of the members of this forum, however I am indicating it again.

If you are serious about your career in instrumentation and control, read this online free book ("Lessons In Industrial Instrumentation" by Tony R. Kuphaldt): The first 4 chapter is pretty basic, start from Chapter 5. It is a very good book on instrumentation.
