Dr. Sven Krause

Admission Requirements:

None

Recommended Previous Knowledge:

Basic knowledge of physics, chemistry and electrical engineering

Educational Objectives:

Professional Competence

Theoretical Knowledge

Students are able to name the most important fundmentals of the Measurement Technology (Quantities and Units, Uncertainty, Calibration,  Static and Dynamic Properties of Sensors and Systems).

They can outline the most important measuring methods for different kinds of quantities to be maesured (Electrical Quantities, Temperature, mechanical quantities,  Flow, Time, Frequency).

They can describe important methods of chemical Analysis (Gas Sensors, Spectroscopy, Gas Chromatography)

Capabilities

Students can select suitable measuring methods to given problems and can use refering measurement devices in practice.

The students are able to orally explain issues in the subject area of measurement technology and solution approaches as well as place the issues into the right context and application area.

Personal Competence

Social Competence

Students can arrive at work results in groups and document them in a common report.

Autonomy

Students are able to familiarize themselves with new measurement technologies.

Lecturer:

Thorsten Schüppstuhl

Language:

German

Period:

Summer and Winter Semester

Content:

Experiment 1: Emission and immission measurement of gaseous pollutants: different technologies to determine different gaseous pollutants in automotive exhaust are used.

Experiment 2: Simulation and measurement of asynchrone engine and rotary pump: the dynamic behaviour of e pump engine will be investigated. The starting will be simulated on a PC and compared with measurement.

Experiment 3: Michelson interferometer and fiber optic: fundamental optical phenonema will be understood and applications with Michelson interferometer and optical fibers demonstrated.

Experiment 4:Identification of the parameters of a control system and optimal control parameters
