Course description and aims

This is a laboratory course covering the following topics: phenomena of electromagnetic wave, standing wave, polarized wave, attenuation, and reflection, nature of wave, such as standing wave and reflection in distributed constant circuit, design of radio frequency circuits and characteristic evaluation of it using vector network analyzer, polarization characteristic of dielectric material and liquid crystal, design, simulation, fabrication of control system using MATLAB and Simulink.
Through programming, simulation, design, fabrication, and characteristic evaluation of circuits, the aims of the course are to deepen students’ comprehension of the subject area and develop their abilities in critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Additionally, through the experiential learning, students will develop practical skills that are essential to become successful engineers and researchers. These include teamwork, leadership, and communication skills ; safety training and experience with electrical devices and machines; methods to obtain and process data; and the ability to draw conclusions from findings and write technical reports.
Electrical and Electronic Engineering Laboratory II is a course held over two academic quarters, and part A makes up the first half of this course.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1. Measure the phenomena of electromagnetic wave; standing wave, polarized wave, attenuation, and reflection and explain them.
2. Measure the standing wave in distributed constant circuit and explain it.
3. Design of radio frequency circuits and characteristic evaluation of it by measurement of S parameters using vector network analyzer and explain the obtained characteristics.
4. Measure the polarization characteristic of dielectric material and liquid crystal and explain the phenomena.
5. Design and simulate the control systems using MATLAB/Simulink and control the equipment.

Corresponding educational goals are:
(3) Communication skills Logical explanations and mutual respect
(8) Skills thinking and writing logically, and explaining and expressing their thoughts in a team

Class flow

This course is held over two academic quarters, with part A making up the first half of the course. The class meets twice weekly for a two-period session.
Students work in teams throughout this course and conduct a series of experiments that each focuses on a certain theme. Each experiment lasts eight hours and is conducted as follows: the first two periods are spent on understanding the objectives of the theme and on preparation; the next four hours are used for carrying out the experiment; and the last two periods are spent on writing a report. The written report must be submitted by a specified date.
Students must read the experiment manual before the start of each experiment to ensure safety and smooth running.
It is also necessary to collaborate together with them.

Textbook(s)

No textbook.

Reference books, course materials, etc.

Course materials can be found on OCW-i.

Assessment criteria and methods

Full attendance and completion of all experiments are compulsory.
Assessment is based on the quality of the written reports and on the status of submission thereof.
The instructor may fail a student if he/she repeatedly comes to class late or resubmits reports too often.
