Course detail

Laboratory of electrical machines and apparatuses

FEKT-NLSPAcad. year: 2015/2016

In this course, students learn about modern methods of measurement of various parameters on electrical machinery and equipment, both using classic instruments and Iza using modern measurement cards. They will learn the basics of creating measuring process using Labview. They will learn the current standards in the field of electrical machinery and apparatus and standardization of measurement. The course is determining measurement errors and their evaluation. Furthermore, zpracovnání quality technical reports of measurements.
