Syllabus academic year 2002/2003


Credits: 3. Grading scale: UG. Optional for: D3. Course coordinator: Johan Nilsson, Inst f elektrisk mätteknik. Prerequisites: ETI190 or ETI195/196 Electronics. Assessment: Continuous examination throughout the laboratory work. Homepage:

Electrical measurements are encountered in almost all areas where M. Sc. Electrical Engineers are active, e.g. detailed studies on signals from brain nerve cells, detection of light in optical fibres or supervision of the production in the process industry. New measurement methods and transducers are developed at an increasing speed, fuelled not to the least by the results in the area of micro system technology.

Knowledge goals
After the completion of the course the students should have gained knowledge

Skill goals
After the completion of the course the students should have gained

Attitude goals
The students will be trained in critical assessment of the measurement results in order to minimise the risk of measurement errors and misinterpretation of the results.

Fundamental concepts like loading of the measurement objects, influence of noise, uncertainty in the results and calibration. Analogue and digital oscilloscopes, digital multimeter, measurement of impedance with bridge- and voltage/current-methods, measurement of time and frequency with universal counter, measurement of frequency spectra with spectrum- and FFT-analyser (FFT – Fast Fourier Transform).
