Measurements in the Buildings (Main course) A5M38MEB
Credits 4
Semesters Winter
Completion Graded Assessment
Language of teaching Czech
Extent of teaching 2P+1L
Annotation
The students will learn about principles of measurement of basic physical quantities in the building. As the majority of the physical quantities are converted to the electrical signals, an overview of measurement of the electrical quantities is also presented. The subject is not intended for students who have already studied the subjects Electrical measurement and Sensors and transducers on CTU FEE.
