2024/25

The subject aims at providing the basic theoretical knowledge and practical skills to the students that would be needed to face the important technical problems in the experimental measurements of the main physical quantities in the energetic field.

All energy systems must be monitored, controlled and regulated. These tasks can only be performed by measuring the physical quantities involved (temperature, pressure, flow rates, ....).
In this context, the course of Energy Systems Lab aims to provide students with the basic theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary to address the important technical problems in the experimental measurements of the main physical quantities in the energy field.

As an outcome from the subject, the students should be able to understand, design and organize the experimental activities which are usually carried out regularly in University laboratories, the Industry as well as in the Research Institutes.

As an outcome from the subject, the students should be able to understand, design and organize the experimental activities which are usually carried out regularly in the University laboratories, the Industry as well as in the Research Institutes.

The students attending this subject should be acquainted with basic knowledge of: mathematics and physics; electricity and fluid-dynamics; mechanics, thermodynamics and heat-transfer. The knowledge of the "C" programming language is also useful.

The students attending this subject should be acquainted with basic knowledge of: mathematics and physics; electricity and fluid-dynamics; mechanics, thermodynamics and heat-transfer.
In more details, the student must review the following topics (with reference to the Three-year Degree in "Energy Engineering" of the "Politecnico di Torino"):

- Heat transfer mechanisms and laws: Conduction, Convection and Radiation. (Termodinamica applicata e trasmissione del calore - 05IHQMK, 10IHQMO)
- Electrical components and electrical connections. C.C. Electrical circuits. Dynamic electrical net. A.C. Electrical net.
( Elettrotecnica/Macchine Elettriche -17AULMK, 17AULLS)

The main subject topics of the theoretical and applied lectures are:
1. International System of Measurements (SI)
2. Measurement Methods and Experimental Errors
3. System Dynamic Models (zero, first and second order) and Fourier analysis
4. Basic Electrical Principles (Electrical Components, Bode Plot, Bridges, Amplifiers, Analogical and Numerical Filters)
5. Data Acquisition Systems (DAQ)
6. Instrument connections and Noise protection
7. Temperature measurement
8. Pressure measurement
9. Flow measurement

The main subject topics of the theoretical and applied lectures are:
1. International System of Measurements (SI) (1.5 h)
2. Measurement Methods and Experimental Errors (1.5 h)
3. Statistical data analysis (12 h)
3. System Dynamic Models (zero, first and second order) and Fourier analysis (4 h)
4. Basic Electrical Principles (Bode Plot, Analogical and Numerical Filters) (5 h)
5. Data Acquisition Systems (DAQ) (17 h)
6. Instrument connections and Noise protection (2 h)
7. Temperature measurement (8 h)
8. Pressure measurement (5 h)
9. Flow measurement (4 h)

Applied lectures (4h):
During the applied lectures the student solves practical exercises concerning the design of an experimental layout, the choice of a sensor, the design of a measuring chain and the setup of a Digital Acquisition System.
Laboratory Lectures (20h):
The students will extensively work with virtual laboratory based on a notebook, Arduino Uno board and shields. Virtual instruments like Oscilloscope, Wave Generator, Spectrum Analyser and Digital Filters will be simulated by means of software that are based on the netbook soundcard. The Arduino Uno Board will be used like a DAQ in order to perform simple experiments.
The Laboratory activities are divided in there macro practical experiences and the student has to prepare a report for each of them. The reports will be discussed during the oral exam.

Lectures (48 h): they regard the course topics, the student is kindly invited to review the topics listed in the pre-requirement section
Applied lectures (9h):
During the applied lectures the student solves practical exercises concerning the design of an experimental layout, the choice of a sensor, the design of a measuring chain and the setup of a Digital Acquisition System.
Laboratory Lectures (3h):
The students will work with virtual laboratory based on a notebook, Arduino Uno board and shields. Virtual instruments like Oscilloscope, Wave Generator, Spectrum Analyzer and Digital Filters will be simulated by means of software that are based on the netbook sound-card. The Arduino Uno Board will be used like a DAQ to perform simple experiments.

The exam consists of: written and oral exams.
Written exam (1h):
The student has to answer to multiple choice questions.
Oral exam:
The student is allowed to attend the to oral exam if he provided at least 60% of the correct answers in the multiple choices test.
The oral exam is focused on:
a) the discussion of the reports written at the end of the laboratory activities;
b) the topics discussed during the lectures.
In order to pass the exam the oral exam has to be higher than 18/30.
The final mark of the exam is the algebraic mean between the mark of the written and the oral exam.

Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.

Attended results.
The exam want to check the capability of the student to design a measuring chain by selecting suitable transducers and properly setting a DAS, and to post-process the measured quantities.
Therefore, it checks the student knowledges about the following topics:
- capability to select of a proper transducer in accordance to the characteristics of the physical quantity under investigation;
- capability to configure the acquisition chain and set the acquisition parameters (sampling frequency, trigger type, Anti-aliasing filter);
- capability to critically analyze and post-process the measured data (uncertainty estimation).
The exam consists of: written test and oral test.
Written exam (1h):
The student must answer 30 multiple choice questions regarding all the topics covered in class.
For each correct answer 1 point is awarded. No penalty is applied for the wrong answer.
Students must be connected to the Politecnico Platform from the Politecnico classroom via their notebook.
Allowed material: Calculator, pens and a clean sheet of A4 paper.
Oral exam:
The student is allowed to attend the to oral exam if he provided at least 60% of the correct answers in the multiple choices test (equal to a mark of 18/30).
The oral exam is focused on the topics discussed during the lectures.
To pass the exam, the oral exam mark must be higher than 18/30.
The final mark of the exam is the algebraic mean between the mark of the written and of the oral exam.

In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
