The course aims to provide students with the concepts useful to face problems of measurement and control of thermal quantities in static and dynamic conditions. The course introduces the fundamentals of temperature measurements; the operating principles and metrological characteristics of reference standards and industrial instrumentation for measuring both temperature and humidity; the characteristics of thermal transducers in dynamic conditions. In addition, the course presents the methods of controlling thermal processes, the control systems, and examples of design and characterization of thermal systems and enclosures. Furthermore, selected measurement problems that requires special and advanced techniques will be discussed. The course will be taught in English by prof. Vito FERNICOLA.
