The book aims at presenting the measurement fundamentals in a strict, though easily accessible way, so that the reader can build a solid background in the measurement science and practice and avoid serious mistakes in the everyday practice of measurements and instrumentation use. In the first part of the book, a model of the measurement process is first presented, so that the origin of the measurement uncertainty is understood and the way it can be expressed and evaluated is clarified. The International System of Units is then presented, together with the calibration and traceability concepts. The part devoted to the measurement fundamentals is then completed with a survey on the basis of the modern instrumentation: Analog-to-Digital and Digital-to-Analog conversion, Digital Signal Processing fundamentals, characteristic and performance of the basic instrumentation and a glance into the so-called soft measurements, which are becoming more and more important in everyday life. The second part of the book aims at presenting some important applications of the general measurement techniques presented in the first part. The covered applications have been selected because of their practical importance, especially in the industrial and manufacturing fields or in the health and safety areas. Moreover, they represent some of the most advanced applications of modern measurement techniques, and reliable results are ensured by a careful and correct application of the general concepts presented in the first part of the book. The applications considered in this second part are: System identification methods, Reliability measurements, EMC measurements, Non-destructive tests, Usability Measurements.Vom Verlag:
The science of measurement and instrumentation is a multidisciplinary study. This book covers a wide range of important topics including fundamental measurement theory, sampling, system identification/signal processing, analog-to-digital conversion, sensors, soft- and hardware aspects of instrumentation, non-destructive testing, electromagnetic compatibility, reliability, and usability. With practical applications and downloadable application examples, including MATLAB codes, it provides valuable information for electrical and systems engineers, EE students, and measurement professionals.
