MREN 318 Sensors and Electric Actuators
This course introduces the basic technologies, structures and operation principles of sensors and electric actuators used in mechatronic systems. The topics include methods for signal collection, conditioning and analysis; physical principles for the measurement of motion, force, torque, pressure, flow and temperature using analog and digital transducers; actuating principles and steady-state
characteristics of dc, induction, synchronous, and special motors.
Various components will be experimentally tested and analyzed.
