Principles of Electrical Measurement (Free PDF)

File Size: 7.20 Mb

In libraries and bookshops we can find various books on electrical measurements1. Most of them describe various aspects of electrical measurements: digital or analogue techniques, sensors, data acquisition, data conversion, etc. However, it can be difficult to find a book that includes a complete guide on the techniques used in taking electrical measurements. The reason for this is rather obvious –modern measuring requires knowledge of many interdisciplinary topics such as computer techniques, electronics, signal processing, micro- and nanotechnology, artificial intelligence methods, etc. It is practically impossible for one author to know and explain all these subjects. Therefore, there are frequently available books called “Handbook of…” written by dozens of co-authors. Unfortunately, such books are mainly more conglomerates of many encyclopaedia entries of unequal levels than comprehensive and compact knowledgeable books.

The other aspect of this problem is that the progress in measuring techniques is very fast, with every year bringing new developments. It is really difficult to catch the state of the art in measurements. It is much easier to gather knowledge on a particular subject in the form of a monograph focused on a special problem. But on the other hand, students and industry engineers look for comprehensive books that are easy to understand and most of all include recent developments, such the computer measuring systems or virtual measuring methods. I lecture on electrical measurements to students of electrical engineering, robotics and informatics. To tell the truth I could not find a suitable book on the whole subject and therefore I decided to write one myself. Last year I “tested” this book on students and the results were quite promising. Most of the students understood the electrical measurements and what most importantly, they found that this subject was interesting, and even fascinating.
