AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Design of measuring systems, including the selection of components and architectures and the development of software for data acquisition, data processing and automatic control. Measurement of motion, forces and acoustic phenomena.

Teaching methods

Lectures and laboratory practice, including a training in the use of state-of-the-art data acquisition systems.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The measuring system as a communication system. Conditioning of input signals: power sources, oscillators, instrumentation amplifiers, current transmission, interfacing criteria. Data acquisition boards. Microcomputers in measuring systems: hardware, software, connectivity. Data acquisition: programming (LabView) and management of data acquisition, for process monitoring and for automatic control. Processing of measurement signals: spectrum analysis and digital filtering (outline). Instrumentation networks; remote control of measuring systems. Architectures of digital measuring systems.

Design and implementation of a position servo-system and of a remote vibration-monitoring system.

Measurement of motion, forces and acoustic phenomena. Microsensors. Case studies.
