Teaching methods

Project work


The basis of this subject is in problems with methods of measurement electrical and non-electrical variables. It’s sensors, convertors, or methods of measurement for measure purposes and control technological actions, focused on control of metallurgical processes. This course is connected on subject called „Hardware of Control Systems“.
