AbstractThis lecture is an introduction to experimental and measurement techniques. The course is designed with practical relevance in mind and comprises several laboratory modules where the students perform, evaluate and document experiments. The taught topics are of relevance for all electrical engineering disciplines, in this course they are taught with examples of high-voltage engineering.
ObjectiveAt the end of this lecture, the students will be able to:
- perform basic practical laboratory experiments and record data, in particular with an oscilloscope.
- take a meaningful Lab Notebook, write a clear measurement evaluation protocol, and can estimate the accuracy and precision of the evaluated data.
- can explain the main reasons for electromagnetic interference and propose measures to avoid or reduce these interferences.
- Explain and use different methods to generate and measure high voltages and calculate basic relevant relations.
Content- Messtechnik, Messunsicherheit, Messprotokolle
