Measurements and Monitoring of Power Systems

Course Description

Measurement of voltage and current. Electrical measurement of non-electrical quantities. Pointing instruments, registers and measuring transducers. Standard output voltages and currents. Measuring loop. Measuring transducers of displacement, angle, pressure, vibration, force, torque, speed, speed of rotation, acceleration, level, flow, analytical parameters, temperature and radiation. Infra red measuring technique. Ex zone converters. NAMUR output. Unconventional measurement of electrical quantities (Rogowsky scroll, optical measuring transformers). Intelligent measuring transducers. HART protocol. Local sensor networks and data buses. Computer-aided measuring systems.
