Intended learning outcomes

To provide an overview of principles and methods of modern measurement technology. In the course the measurement of both electrical and non-electrical signals are treated. After the course the student should be able to:

  • explain simple theories behind measurements of current and voltage of electrical cicuits, DC and AC, with multimeter and oscilloscope, and perform such measurements.
  • explain the detection principle of perform measurements with some physical and chemical sensors
  • explain components and functions in a computerized measurement system including; sensors, sensor interfaces, digitizing, data transmission, data analysis and data presentation
  • implement numeric calculations and simulations related to the concepts in TFMT14
  • demonstrate the ability to calculate the quantitative aspects related to the concepts in this course.

Course content

Measurements of electrical properties with multimeter and oscilloscope. Components and functions of a measurement system; sensor, signal conditioning, linearization, signal transmission, A/D conversion, presentation, measurement data acquisition and treatment.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
