MECH 2440 - Process Control Technologies
4 sem hrs cr
(3 hours lecture-2 hours lab)
This course is a study of the Process Control technologies associated with a complex mechatronics system. Topics covered will include the Closed Loop Control; interaction between controllers, sensors and actuators; controller operating parameters; PID controllers; ON/OFF and PID controllers; and the differences between controllers typically used in mechatronic systems. The analysis of plant documentation and manuals, the creation and interpretation of charts with diagrams for time-based changes of measured values will also be covered. Prerequisite: MECH 1310 and MATH 1710 or MATH 1720 or MATH 1730 or MATH 1910
In rare and unusual circumstances, a course prerequisite can be overridden with the permission of the Curriculum lead for the discipline.
