Download Elektrische Meßtechnik: Elektrische und elektronische by Kurt Bergmann PDF

By Kurt Bergmann

Das Erscheinungsbild der Elektrischen Meßtechnik wird mittlerweile in einem so weit­ reichenden Umfang durch elektronische Verfahren und Einrichtungen geprägt, daß es mir wünschenswert zu sein schien, Studierenden der Elektrotechnik eine ausgewogene Neu­ fassung des Basiswissens dieses Fachgebietes in die Hand zu geben. Zwar fehlt es nicht an Lehrbüchern mit Schwerpunktbildungen einmal im Bereich der klassischen elektrischen Meßtechnik und zum anderen im Bereich der elektronischen Meßtechnik mit jeweils kurzgefaßten Ausblicken auf den anderen Bereich, doch scheint mir die getrennte Dar­ stellung dieser miteinander heute so eng verflochtenen Bereiche die Verständnisentwick­ lung während des Studiums zu erschweren und zu verzögern. Der Studierende wird heute schon in Anfangssemestern mit elektronischen Geräten konfrontiert und benötigt dazu gewisse grundlegend wichtige Erläuterungen, auch wenn die Darstellung ihrer inneren Schaltungstechnik und Wirkungsweise erst später nachgetragen werden kann. Im Bereich der Anlagentechnik schließlich sind elektrische und elektronische Verfahren heute so eng miteinander verflochten, daß guy dem fortgeschrittenen Studierenden und dem in den ersten Berufsjahren stehenden Ingenieur nur aus einer Gesamtschau heraus Informationen für weitere Studien und eigene Literaturrecherchen geben kann. Eine derartige Gesamtschau setzt wegen der Fülle des Stoffes allerdings voraus, daß guy dem Studierenden in shape einer geeignet strukturierten Darstellung Hinweise darauf gibt, welche Textteile grundlegend wichtige Informationen enthalten, so daß guy sie bereits während des Grundstudiums durcharbeiten sollte, wo etwa Ergänzungen für ein erwei­ terndes Fachstudium beispielsweise in Verbindung mit spezielleren Wahlvorlesungen stehen, und wo schließlich der Nachschlagebereich für Ergänzungsstudien und literatur­ recherchen beginnt.
