Language of instruction
The contents of the module concern monitoring and management activities, referring both to the relevant electrical quantities in the industrial environment and to the management of measurement systems and related processes. The course is therefore divided into three teaching units. The first one deals with the measurement of electrical quantities in the industrial field, identifying the measured quantities, the measurement methods, and the instrumentation used. The second unit illustrates the architecture of an industrial monitoring system, both with respect to the measurement chain and with respect to the methods of interconnection of the constituent elements. The third teaching unit deals with instrumentation and data management methodologies, focusing on reliability, maintenance, and related reference documents.

Educational objectives
The course aims to provide advanced concepts and skills in the field of electrical measurements in the industrial field, useful to:
• identify critical quantities and the related measurement chain to effectively monitor an industrial process;
• select the most appropriate instrumentation, and its interfacing in a modern integrated system for monitoring and process control; • select and design strategies for instrumentation management;
• evaluate the reliability of a complex and distributed data acquisition system;
• select and design strategies for the acquisition and management of measurement data;
It is recommended to have acquired the contents of the course of Electronic Measurements with Laboratory, degree course in Computer Science and Electronic Engineering
