14. Description of lectures
It provides engineering knowledge (and develops BSc knowledge further) about the basic theory of electronics and electronic measurement systems, about modeling them, and about their use in transport systems. Introduces students to the operating principles of the basic elements of electronics and measurement technology, the modeling and analysis methodology of circuitry with active circuit elements. It reviews the methods of measuring various electrical and mechanical quantities and the possibilities of processing the measurement results. It illustrates the possibilities of use through various examples of transport sectors.

Topics: Basics of network analysis, Four Pole Theory; analysis rules for circuit elements and networks. Use of active electronic devices in switching mode, analyzing switched operation. Use of active electronic devices in linear operation; small signal AC models of components and networks and analyzing such networks. The use of operational amplifiers (OpAmps). Frequency dependency, frequency dependent amplifiers.
Basics of measurement technology, measurement theory. Measurement of signals and signal parameters. Measurement characteristics of signaling and signal transformation. Measurement characterization of signal sources. Signal analysis tools. Review of measurement errors in measurement systems, failure analysis and measurement accuracy issues. Transmitters and transducers of the measuring system. Measuring circuits. Features and tools for signal processing and data storage. Measurement of basic electrical parameters. Voltage measurement, current measurement. Frequency and time measurement. Measuring instruments and measuring tools, calibration. Time and frequency domain. Measurements in the frequency domain. Possibilities of electronic measurement of mechanical quantities. Application of computerized measurement environments for measurement, data collection tasks; signal processing methods.
