Subject description


  • Enrolment in 2. Year of undergraduate study – Technical quality

Content (Syllabus outline):

  • measurement methods (measurement of electrical and non-electrical physical quantities; differential and zero method; replacement and exchange method; compensation and bridge method; methods of analogy, counting and repetition)
  • modelling of measurement processes (measurement system of zero, first and second order; practical examples)
  • measurement instrumentation (history, classical and modern measurement instruments)
  • basics of probability theory and information theory in measurement (introduction to errors and uncertainty, statistical distributions, measurement signals)
  • computerized measurements (introduction to the measurement automation, hardware, sampling, analysis of acquired measurement signals)
  • software in measurement processes (introduction to software usage in measurements, data acquisition, processing and presentation of results, typical errors)
