ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation


Introduction l.jpg
Introduction

  • Application Goals

    • What is the project about?

    • What are you trying to achieve with your final design?

  • Educational Goals

    • What topics have we covered in class that influence your understanding of the project?

    • You need to name at least two.

ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation


Background l.jpg
Background

  • What is the theory that you must understand in order to know what is going on in the project?

  • What does the initial design do and how does it work?

  • Cite references and include in appendix

    • web sites (include a link name, not a copy)

    • books

How to cite references l.jpg
How to Cite References

  • In your report, put the number of the reference after the information you took from the reference. If you take a direct quote, you need to put it in quotes:

    • Inductors are more complex devices than capacitors. When you use one in a circuit, you not only need to consider the value of the inductance, but also the “DC resistance of the coil, the current-carrying capacity of the coil windings, the breakdown voltage between the coil and the frame, and the frequency range in which the coil is designed to operate.” [1]

  • Do not use too many direct quotes. Try to use your own words:

    • If you try to put more current through an inductor than the coil can handle, it gets hot and could be unsafe. [1]

  • In the appendix, include a list of references

Initial design l.jpg
Initial Design

  • Building the initial design

    • How did you build it?

    • What did you learn while building it?

  • Calculations/Measurements/Plots/Circuit Diagrams

    • Include in appendix

    • Tell where these things are located in appendix

    • May repeat in report for clarity

  • How did it work?

    • What results did you get?

    • Is there room for improvement? Where?

  • ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation


    Final design l.jpg
    Final Design

    • Building the final design

      • What did you change?

      • Why did you make these changes?

      • What did you learn while building the final design?

    • Calculations/Measurements/Plots/Circuit Diagrams

      • Include in appendix

      • Tell where these things are located in the appendix

      • May repeat in report for clarity

  • How did it work?

    • What results did you get?

    • Is this an improvement over the initial design?

  • ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation


    Results and conclusions l.jpg
    Results and Conclusions

    • How good are your results?

      • Engineers use quantitative comparisons whenever possible. (i.e. percent error, percent improvement, graphs, tables, etc.)

      • Text should have highlights, trends and general conclusions.

      • You may only have enough data for a qualitative comparison (i.e. better, worse, clearer, etc.)

    • Sources of error

      • What factors caused your results to be less than ideal?

      • Formal error analysis not necessary.

      • What improvements could you make to get better results?

    • Basic conclusions and answers to questions

      • Answer the questions given to you in the project handout.

      • The questions should help you to draw some basic conclusions about the project.

    Extra credit l.jpg
    Extra Credit

    • Discuss anything you did to get extra credit

      • What did you do?

      • Why did you try this?

      • How did it work?

      • Why is it extra credit?

    ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation


    Personal responsibilities l.jpg
    Personal Responsibilities

    • Decide on tasks that need to be done

    • Assign responsibility for each task to one person

    • Describe who did what

    • Do not just say “We all did everything.”

    • Either do a final review together, or have one person review the final report for clarity and consistency.

    Appendices l.jpg
    Appendices

    • Useful data or results from experiments

    • Information resources

      • From the web

      • From the library or other sources

    • Only attach useful information

      • Useless information will result is a loss of points

      • Explain the purpose of each piece of info

    Concise vs brief l.jpg
    Concise vs. Brief

    • Concise is the goal

      • All relevant information included

      • Efficient and specific

      • Make it easy to see what you want to communicate (graphs, charts, tables, etc.)

    • Brief is not the goal

      • Short and general

      • Not all information included

      • Not sufficient for an engineering report

    Grading 100 points l.jpg
    Grading -- 100 points

    • Projects are graded out of 100 points

    • Each project also has 20 points for participation based on attendance.

    • Each project has a grade sheet for the 80 point report. It is posted on-line.

      • Specific point values assigned to each part for a total of 70 points

      • 10 points for a general assessment of quality, organization and understanding.
