Control System Design

The objective of this course is to introduce energy transmission based on hydraulics and pneumatics, basic fluid dynamics, component knowledge with respect to functionality and design of pumps, motors, cylinders, valves, accumulators, filters and line components. Also students learn about characteristics of fluids, system design for different hydraulic and pneumatic circuits and calculation methods for components and systems. On completion of the course, students will receive a broad-base knowledge of basic system principles for control of position, velocity/speed, force/torque and power. The course also provides students with a greater working expertise and understanding of programmable logic controllers applications in hydraulic and pneumatics control system.
