Exploring the Universe of Digital Measurement Technology

Digital measurement technology has dramatically evolved over the recent years, transforming into an indispensable asset across myriad technical applications. It equips us with the capabilities to accurately capture and process measurement data, laying the groundwork for diverse applications such as automation technology, aviation, automotive manufacturing, drive technologies, construction, innovative energy storage solutions, research and development, and beyond. But what lies at the heart of digital metrology?

Aims of the Course

This comprehensive course unravels the principles behind electronic or digital measurement technology. You’ll explore electronic functions including AD-converters, DA-converters, sampling systems, and more, and gain the skills to design and construct corresponding circuits. Beyond mastering the theoretical foundations, you will also get to see these principles come to life through hands-on experiments. By the end of the seminar, you’ll be adept at applying the knowledge you’ve acquired directly into your professional environment.

IPERMON – Innovative Performance Monitoring System for Improved Reliability and Optimized Levelized Cost of Electricity

Currently, a vast amount of research institutions and organizations are focusing on ways to improve the operation, reliability and consequently the output of PV systems. An important aspect yet to be targeted remains the procedural and standardized approach to calculate accurately the factors behind the various performance loss mechanisms, while also detecting and diagnosing potential failures at early stages or before occurrence. Identification of degradation and failure modes at preliminary stages is important as these mechanisms directly influence the performance, lifetime and reliability of PV technology.
