 COURSE INTRODUCTION

Introduction to Measurement Technology (measuring architectures, practical examples)

FUNDAMENTALS OF ELECTRICAL MEASUREMENTS

Main Terms and Definitions (measurement technique, main methods)

Uncertainty of Measurements (errors, uncertainty, reliability, evaluation of the uncertainty in measurements)

Standards of Electrical Quantities (standards, etalons, calibration and validation, standards of electrical quantities referred to the physical phenomena and laws, material standards of electrical quantities)

CLASSIC ELECTRICAL MEASUREMENTS

Indicating Measuring Instruments (electromechanical instruments versus digital measuring systems, moving coil meters, moving iron meters, electrodynamic meters, wattmeters, induction type watt-hour meters)

Recording and Displaying Measuring Instruments (oscilloscopes, recorders and data storage devices)

Bridge Circuits (balanced and unbalanced bridge circuits, null-type DC bridge circuits, AC bridge circuits, transformer bridge circuits, unbalanced bridge circuits, Anderson loop)

Potentiometers and Comparators (DC and AC comparators, practical applications)

MEASUREMENT APPLICATIONS AND SOLUTIONS

DC and AC Measurement Applications (measurement transformers, single-phase and three-phase power measurements, power quality analysis, impedance measurements, three-voltmeter-method, bridge methods, inductance and capacitance measurements)

Smart Electrical Loads... (or really, we pollute the electrical network? – case study)

Loop Impedance Measurement (…in case of sensitive electronics – case study)
