Course detail

Sensors

FEKT-BSNIAcad. year: 2018/2019

The course presents to studnets basic sensor principles, concepts and procedures of the non-electrical quantities measurements. It presents the specific problems of the non-electrical quantities measurements on the real industry problems and compare them with electrical quantities measurements. Also the optical and optical fibre sensors and measurement techniques, data acquisition, process and evaluation are preseneted.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will be able to:
- Get a basic, in good engineering practice to use the knowledge and skills of the fiber sensor and optical fiber sensors,
- Discuss basic design concept of the measuring chain,
- To determine the optimal method of measurement,
- Define the measured data,
- Describe the process and evaluate the measured

Course graduate should get basic knowledges and facilities in sensor field and the most commonly measured non-electrical quantities, include measurement concept design and results process and evaluaiton.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations. Laboratory (numerical) is compulsory, properly excused absences laboratory exercises (maximum of two) can be arranged with the teacher substitute (usually in the credit week).
Techning methods include lectures and practical laboratories. Students have to write a two assignment during the course.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

The test focuses on the verification of knowledge (orientation) information literacy course. He has written a mandatory laboratory (numeric) and oral part.
Evaluation laboratory 0 - 30
Oral part of exam 0 - 70
