EE3203 Measuring Instruments
This is an introductory course for third semester Technician and Technology students. Most common measuring instruments, including voltmeter, ammeter, ohmmeter, wattmeter, meggers and oscilloscope will be studied and some will be designed. Measuring Instruments are the eyes of the electrician. An understanding of how measuring instruments operate is very important to anyone working in the electrical field. They provide the electrician with the ability to evaluate problems in the job through the use of technical tools. They also enable an electrician to correctly determine electrical values of voltage, current, resistance, power and many others. In this course, D’Arsonval meter movement and digital display will be used to design different types of meters. Loading of different instruments and their high frequency characteristics will be discussed.
