Corequisite:
Safety in Electrical Engineering for a master´s degree (BEZM)
Lecturer:
Antonín Platil (guarantor), Pavel Ripka (guarantor)
Tutor:
Antonín Platil (guarantor), Pavel Ripka (guarantor)
Supervisor:
Department of Measurement
Synopsis:

Overview of basic and advanced knowledge of sensors and extension by knowledge needed for design and development of sensor systems.

The content reflects perspective principles of sensors as well as methods of complex sensor signal conditioning and processing. Sensors and sensor systems are shown in specific applications, the design procedures are shown in case studies. Labs in the first part are focused on complex characterization of sensor parameters, in the second part on independent design using FEM modeling and experimental verification.

Requirements:

no prerequisities

Knowlege of physics and of electrical measurements is welcome

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Principles of physical sensors: sensors of position and derived quantities

2. Principles of physical sensors: sensors of force and pressure, flowrate and level

3. Principles of physical sensors: sensors of temperature, sensors of ionizing radiation

4. Principles of physical sensors: sensors of magnetic field, electrical current

5. Principles of physical sensors: chemical sensors and biosensors

6. Materials for sensors and their characterization. Methods of uncertainty reduction. Examples of methods for testing. Smart sensors.
