Course Description

BRIEF COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course enables the design Sensors, signal and transducers systems which enable a

controllable automated system for an accomplishment of a performance.

This class introduces students to the knowledge, analyses, and synthesis skills as well as to the components and technologies required to develop electromechanical devices with embedded processors. The theory of operation of mechanical, electrical, and software components is reviewed, and components are then studied from the functional perspective given their ability to operate as part of sensing, actuation and control subsystems. In doing this, students learn techniques for analog and digital sensing, filtering, timing, and logical control, power amplification, and actuation.

 

COURSE JUSTIFICATION/RATIONALE:

To enables the students to understand the fundamentals of mechatronics systems and control.

 

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES

·   Explain how Sensors and transducers operate;

·   Determine Signal conditioning theories;

·   Design of Control System in State Space;

·   Design Robust Control Systems;

·   Determine Optimal Control.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

A student on completing this course is expected to:

·   Explain a Variable Structure System;

·   Use an Industrial Robot and its control Automobile Engine Control

Electromechanical disc-control;

·   Explain the operation of a Vehicle suspension Control.
