1.1. Introduction

Brief presentation of the subject

In general, instruments and measurement techniques have been taught in the introductory courses of the degree of Electrical Engineering. This course aims to deeply review the various problems that arise in real measurement procedures: Uncertainties associated with the measurement procedures, characterization of the instruments used in electrical measures and their limitations and methodologies, computer-controlled measurements. Additionally any physical, both electrical and non-electrical quantity can be adquire by sensors that transform it to an electrical quantity. In this sense, the course aims to address a broad review of the different types of sensors that are regularly employed in industry. The course is strongly oriented towards using real instruments in the laboratory while it is also complemented with theoretical foundations in classroom.
