Basic measurement principles based on resistance, capacitance, light, magnetism etc.. Instrumentation for selected physical process variables. Selected control elements.

Learning outcome

Knowledge: The candidate - has in-depth knowledge of techniques, circuits and components for conditioning, conversion and transmission of analog measurement signals. - has in-depth knowledge of elementary measurement principles and instrumentation for selected physical process variables. - has basic knowledge of selected industrial actuators. Skills: The candidate - is able to choose appropriate instrumentation technology based on a description of process properties and performance requirements. - is able to construct and analyse circuits for conditioning, conversion and transmission of analog measurement signals. - is able to use various laboratory instruments. General: The candidate - is able to communicate about industrial instrumentation with specialists as well as system users.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures, laboratory work including practical project and computer exercises, and theory assignments.

Compulsory assignments

  • Exercises
  • Work

Further on evaluation

Portfolio evaluation is the basis for the final grade. Parts of the portfolio are final written exam (70%) and laboratory work (30%). The result for each part is given in percentage units, while evaluation of the entire portfolio (the final grade) is given as a letter. To pass the course, all parts of the exam must be evaluated and given a passed grade level. If there is a re-sit examination, the examination form may change from written to oral. In the case that the student receives an F/Fail as a final grade after both ordinary and re-sit exam, then the student must retake the course in its entirety. Submitted work that counts towards the final grade will also have to be retaken.

Specific conditions

Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
