Measuring Technology and InstrumentationLaajuus (3 cr)

Code: AE00CM65

Objective

Students will be competent in making basic measurements safely and correctly. They will be able to determine and locate possible faults by interpreting the measuring results. The student is able to tune the equipment to operate energy efficiently based on the measurement results obtained. They will take into account the impact of external interferences on measurement results. Students will learn about the characteristics of computer-based measuring devices and their possible uses in different applications.

Students will understand industrial processes, instrumentation diagram drawings and possess the eadiness they need to design industrial control and adjustment systems. Students will be competent in using the more common methods of measurement used in industry and be capable of planning, measuring and installing instruments for industrial processes. They will also be competent in selecting measurement and control instruments and plan the installation, purchase and startup of them.

Content

- Basic concepts of industrial instrumentation
- Instrumentation diagrams and documents
- Principles of instrumentation and measurement technology
- Instrument installation and field engineering for industrial processes
- Maintenance documents and how to make them
- Measurements in the lab.

Qualifications

Electrical engineering
Automation technology basic courses

Assessment criteria, satisfactory (1)

The student knows the measuring methods of basic quantities and the selection criteria of the sensor types. He can place the sensors according to the instruction and can connect the sensors and regulating units. Furthermore, he can read the PI schemes and can locate the devices from the processes according to the code.

Assessment criteria, good (3)

In addition to the previous, the student knows the operating principles of modern regulating units and can locate using the information within reach of the fault and indicators. He can make the measurings of the automation according to the instruction using PC based measurement systems.

Assessment criteria, excellent (5)

The student can dimension independently and can choose the correct measuring devices and regulating units to the basic processes of the automation and can search for information about the special measurement equipment and can apply the knowledge got by it. The student can measure the condition of the measuring devices which are used in the processes and if necessary, command the tuning and calibration of them.
