Course description

Basic terms in metrology. Measurement uniformity, metrology pyramid, traceability. International system of (measurement) units (SI). Numerical (ratio) units. Errors. Measurement uncertainty. Complete measurement result. Decision making based on the complete measurement result. Types of signals, signal parameters, visualisation in time and frequency domain. Measurement equipment. Measurement instruments (electromechanical, analogue electronic, digital). Maintenance of measurement instruments. Digital multimetre. Oscilloscope. Digital measurement systems (sensor, transducer, conditioner, display). Measurement methods (deflection, null, comparison, substitution, differential, direct, indirect). Measurement of electrical quantities (current, voltage, frequency, phase displacement, apparent power, active power, reactive power, power factor, energy, resistance, inductance, capacitance, dissipation factor, impedance and admittance). PC based automated measuring systems.

Knowledge and skills acquired

Basic knowledge of metrology, measurement instruments and methods. Developing skills for correct measurements of basic electrical quantities.

ECTS credits

An ECTS credit value has been added according to calculation of time required for studying and successful course completion.

Examination methods

Written and oral exam.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment
