PRINCIPLE OF INSTRUMENTATION AND MEASUREMENT (BEKG 1233)
At the end of this course, students should be able to:
 Describe the principle, various terms and standards in measurement.
 Explain the principle of measurement devices.
 Apply the suitable bridge techniques to measure component values such as resistance, inductance and capacitance.
 Explain the operation, function and applications of transducers/sensors.
This subject discusses about units and dimensions, standards, errors, static characteristic, noise and calibration in measurement. It covers most on the measurement devices such as galvanometers, ammeters, voltmeters, wattmeter, temperature, force and torque and pressure measurement as well as accelerator meter. It also introduces oscilloscope and sensors for instrumentation application.
