Learning outcomes

After a successfully completed course the student should be able to:

  • account for basic electrical concepts and perform basic electronic circuit analysis,
  • choose electronic measurement systems and sensors as well as perform physical experiments to provide a solution to a problem,
  • handle the most common electrical measurement instruments,
  • connect and analyse basic electric circuits based on a given circuit diagram,
  • evaluate experiments based on estimated error sources and different measurement setups,
  • analyse measurement data with MATLAB.

Content

The basis of physical measurements, physical quantities and SI units. Historical development of physical-technical measurements up to today's electronic measurement methods. Electrical measurement instruments (digital multimeters, oscilloscopes) and other laboratory equipment.

Basic electronic/electrical concepts and their application: voltage, current, resistance/impedance, frequency.

Passive linear electronic components: resistor, capacitor, coil.

Basic circuit analysis with Ohms and Kirchhoff's laws. Application of electronic measurement methods in industry, science and technology, built-in and wireless systems. Different types of sensors, their physical operating principles and applications.

Analysis of measurement data: curve fitting for physical models, measurement uncertainty, sources of error.

Instruction

Lectures, lessons, practical labs and computer labs.

Assessment

Written exam at the end of the course (4 credits). Practical laboratory examination (1 credit).
