Module content
Lectures:

Lecture concentrates mainly on basic topics of electrical and electronic instrumentation and measurements in order to provide the students a base for their further study and work in various laboratories where they will operate various measuring instruments.
Another target is to familiarise them with technical terms and expressions important in this area of science.
Lecture topics include:
Basic definitions of measurement process. Errors. Accuracy indices.
System of units. Standards.
Direct measurements of current voltage and power using indicating instruments.
D.C. bridges. D.C. potentiometers.
A.C. bridges.
Sensors of nonelectrical quantities: Strain gauges, Capacitive sensors, LVDT – Linear Variable Differential Transformer, RTD – Resistance Temperature Detector.
Sensors interfacing: D.C. Instrumentation Amplifiers. Carrier frequency amplifiers. Frequency modulation and demodulation.
Active filters.
Integrated sensors.

Laboratory classes:

As it can be assumed that students are familiar with the hardware used in measurements, practicala take place in the computer laboratory where the students working in small two-persons teams perform simulation of various electrical and electronic circuits, discussed earlier during the lectures.
The topics of practicals include:
1. Direct measurements
2. Complex measurements
3. DC bridge
4. AC bridge
5. Virtual oscilloscope
6. Poliphase power measurements
7. Sensor bridge as signal modulator
8. Resistance sensor interfacing
9. Capacitance sensor interfacing
10. Instrumentation a mplifiers
11. Oscillators
Students performance is evaluated on the base of 3 tests based on topics covered by experiments.
