Summer Semester

Das Praktikum befasst sich mit der automatisierten Erfassung und Verarbeitung von Sensor- und Messsignalen. Da es sich um Versuche aus den Gebieten Sensorik mechanischer Größen, Messsignalverarbeitung und Programmierung von Messplätzen handelt, werden hauptsächlich Studenten aus den Studienrichtungen EEI und Mechatronik, aber auch MB und CE angesprochen.

Die Versuche umfassen im Einzelnen die Themen

  • Grundlagen zur graphischen Programmierung mit NI LabVIEW, Generierung und Erfassung von Signalen, virtuelles Oszilloskop, virtueller Funktionsgenerator
  • Messung von Winkel und Drehzahl (Einsatz unterschiedlicher Messprinzipien)
  • Charakterisierung von Störungen und Rauschen, Analyse im Zeit- und Frequenzbereich, Filterung von Messsignalen
  • Was ist „Echtzeit”? Synchronisation von Abläufen, Einsatz von FPGAs

Im Praktikum Grundlagen der Elektrotechnik III sollen die theoretisch erlangten Kenntnisse der Vorlesung durch praktische Versuche vertieft werden. Im Laufe des Semesters werden die Studenten vier Laborversuche durchführen:

  • Versuch 1: Einschaltvorgänge
  • Versuch 2: Operationsverstärker
  • Versuch 3: Brückenschaltung
  • Versuch 4: Nichtlineare Bauteile

Von den Studenten wird verlangt sich intensiv auf die Versuche vorzubereiten um den größten Lernerfolg zu erreichen.

Das Praktikum gilt als bestanden, wenn alle vier Versuche erfolgreich durchgeführt wurden.
