Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Have knowledge about how different physical systems are built up and interact, this includes for instance understanding of:
    • System division in different layers
    • How to take different time-constants in a system into account
    • How inner control loops affects outer control loops and vise versa
  • Have knowledge about what to measure and with which precision, this includes knowledge about
    • Different measurement techniques to be applied
    • Planning and documentation
    • Accuracy
      • analogue versus digital measurements and the combination hereof
    • What affects the accuracy and the resolution of measured signals
  • Have knowledge about how to detect signals in noise
    • Mean values and standard deviation
    • Noise and interference, coupling mechanisms

Skills

  • Be able to split up a system in different subparts to have better overview of the total system and to understand how the subparts affects each other
    • Physical layers contra data, business and control layers
    • Sub-systems with different time constants
  • Be able to calculate the accuracy of a given measurement
  • Be able to document a validate a test set up

Competences

  • Be able to use the acquired skills for test and validation and understanding of system set ups for different systems and apparatus
  • Be able to use the professional approach for test and validation and understanding of system set ups in academic and interdisciplinary collaboration
  • Be able to identify their own learning needs and to structure own learning within test and validation
  • Be able to understand the difference between test, train, and validation systems
