Course abstract
The objective of Course is to give students knowledge in experimental methods, measuring technique, data acquisition and computer based measuring systems. Students obtain theoretical principles of Performance characteristics of instruments, sensors, signal conditioning, virtual measurements and data evaluation software and programming tools.
Learning outcomes and their assessment
• Knowledge. Students acquire deep theoretical and practical knowledge on measuring non-electrical quantities with electrical measurement techniques and principles of virtual instruments. Students acquire knowledge how to use data loggers and LabView software for data acquisition, data processing and regression analysis of data.
• Skills. The ability to creatively use their knowledge in experiments planning and selecting and designing appropriate measuring systems. The ability to perform experimental data evaluation, error measurement and the defining of regression equations. • Competence. Students are capable of independent critical analysis of use of various sensors for measuring of a dynamic process, and evaluation of a measuring system with virtual instruments in the different experiments. Master students are able to base their decisions, and integrate knowledge acquired of other areas and study courses to plan necessary experiments and data treatment of their research work.
