- Learning Outcomes
- 1.Apply measurement principles and analyse the function of complex transducers.
2.Predict the dynamic and steady-state behaviour of simple systems.
3.Apply control system strategies and analyse their behaviour using computer simulation.
4.Employ different controller types and apply a range of tuning methods.
- Measurement of flow - venturi, vortex & electromagnetic types
Measurement of viscosity and Reynold's Number
Measurement of position, speed and acceleration - limitations of potentiometers, encoders - LVDT & RDVT
Control valves - selection and operation
Simple control systems modelling - the transfer function for first and second order systems
Introduction to computer simulation of systems
Controller types, control system strategies & PID controller tuning methods
Steady state errors and disturbance rejection
