ECEN-425 – Advanced Mechatronic Engineering 1: Hardware and Control
|Points:||15||Prerequisites:||ECEN 301 (or PHYS 340)|
|School:||Engineering & Comp Sci||Restrictions:||None|
This course provides an introduction to the techniques of mechatronics. It begins by covering the engineering concepts of compromise in the choice of sensors. It then covers basic signal conditioning and noise concepts, derivation of the transfer function and the output from a mechatronic system - specifically some form of actuator. The course continues with some specific ranging sensor circuits and applications, including practical implementation. Practical control systems for industrial plant and mechatronic systems are detailed, e.g. PID, dynamic response and stability. Students design and construct their own microcontroller development system. Mechatronic design considerations are discussed based on implementation through the SolidWorks CAD package.
