Pre-requisite: (ELE1502 and (ELE2101 or ELE2103) and (ELE2503 or ELE2504)) or Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: GCEN or METC or MEPR or MENS
Students will comprehend the physical principles of making accurate, precise and trustworthy measurements, particularly of small quantities (microvolts, microamperes). They will be able to specify and evaluate equipment for a given measurements task; requiring an appreciation of electronic measurement systems. At the system level students will have an awareness of the range, operating principles and limitations of commercial test equipment. At the circuit level students will understand the effects and minimisation of interference, configurations of certain commonly employed circuits such as the Phase Lock Loop and frequency synthesis, and the choice of components and construction details. Students will also study elements of electromagnetic compatibility, as well as implementation of measurement systems with regard to human and environmental impacts.
