Module content
Lectures:

The lecture is focused on the basic problems of measuring of electrical and non-electrical signals and description of broad range of electronic instruments that students will use during their further study.
Lecture topics include:
1. Introductory topics (1 h)
Measurement, measured quantity, measurement scale, measurement result. Basic measurement methods.

2. Quantity units and standards (1 h)
International system uf units (SI), basic and derived units and their definitions. Prefixes. Reference standards of electrical quantities (electric current, electromotive force, resistance, electrical capacity, inductance, time and frequency), physical realization of standards.

3. Signals and their parameters (2 h)
Definition of signal, classification of signals, definitions of parameters characterizing signals (mean value, rms value, peak value, form and crest factor, duty cycle, harmonic content, THD etc.).

4. Oscilloscope and oscilloscope measurements(4 h)
Principle of operation and construction of analog and digital oscilloscopes. Measurement of parameters of signals using the oscilloscope. Types of oscilloscopes.

5. Measurements with digital instruments (2 h)
Sampling of signals, sampling theorem, aliasing. Quantization and coding. Basic analog to digital converters (integrating, compensating, flash) and digital to analog converters. Parameters of analog to digital converters. Digital measurement of voltage, time and frequency.

6. Impedance measurements using indirect and bridge methods (2 h)
Basic indirect methods for measuring resistance and impedance. Basic bridge structures, null conditions.

7. Measurement of non-electric quantities (2 h)
Electronic measurements of temperature, distance and pressure. Electronic ballance.

8. Errors and measurement uncertainty (4 h)

Additional information
Method of calculating the final grade:

The final mark (Mf) is calculated as:
Mf = 0.7*Ml + 0.3*Mt
where Ml is the number of points (in %) scored from the laboratory and Mt is the number of points scored from the final test (in %) covering topics presented during the lecture.

Laboratory mark is calculated as:
Ml = 0.7*Me + 0.3*Mb
where Me is the is the number of points (in %) scored from the evaluation of data measured during the laboratory exercises and Mb is the number of points (in %) scored from preparation to the current exercise.

Points are conwerted into the final mark accordingly to the regulations of studies at AGH.

To pass the laboratory the student must obtained the score greater than 50%.
It will be possible to get the credit from one not passed exercise in the last week of the semester.
