The goal of the course is to allow the student understanding and being able to design some parts of most common sensor and conditioning systems in industrial applications for energetic purposes.
LEARNING OUTCOMES. By the end of this content area, students will be able to have:
1. knowledge and understanding of the different available electronic sensing solutions in the energy industry, their practical applications and limitations.
2. knowledge and understanding of the different techniques for conditioning the signal provided by a sensor/transducer, and their limitations.
3. knowledge and ability to apply basic signal treatment procedures from a sensor¿s signal by means of electronic circuits and stages.
4. the ability to combine theory and practice to solve problems about electronic instrumentation.
5. The ability to analyse, to design and to document an electronic/optoelectronic instrumentation system for its application in an energy system.
6. the ability to design and conduct appropriate experiments and apply the technical skills acquired for the experimental evaluation of an electronic instrumentation system as well as to properly analyse and interpret the results/data obtained from an engineering point of view, and to draw conclusions about the system performance.
7. an effective behaviour as an individual and as a member of a team.
8. awareness of the health, safety and legal issues and responsibilities of engineering practice, the impact of engineering solutions in a societal and environmental context, and commit to professional ethics, responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
9. recognised the need for, and have the ability to engage in independent, life-long learning.
