Measurement System Design

In this open-ended lab, students build a specialized measurement system for a device under test (DUT). Students will design, architect, build, and validate their measurement system based on a realistic test or monitoring application.

This is lab 10 of 10 in the course, Student Projects for Measurements and Instrumentation.


After completing this project, students will be able to:
  1. Use the knowledge of sensors, measurements and signal conditioning to test and measure the physical performance of an electric device.
  2. Use various software analysis techniques and tests to quantify the normal behavior of an electric device.
  3. Build a sophisticated measurement software that monitors the behavior of a device and automatically detects any anomalous performance, interprets it and takes corresponding action.
