Unit introduction

The speed and efficiency of many industrial processes is due, largely, to the control systems selected for the application and the engineer’s ability to apply the most appropriate technology for their operation.
This unit presents a structured approach to the development of advanced electronic solutions in a range of industrial situations. An essential requirement here is the engineer’s ability to utilise the most appropriate technology for each application, to ensure the most efficient monitoring and control of variables such as pressure, temperature and speed.
Among the topics included in this unit are techniques and applications of electrical and electronic engineering, as they apply to various branches of industry, such as component handling, controlling the speed or torque of a motor or responding to change of circumstances in a process.
On successful completion of this unit you will be able to describe system elements and consider their overall characteristics. This provides opportunity for analytically assessing the accuracy and repeatability of electronic instruments.

By the end of this you will be able to:

1. Describe the main elements of an electronically controlled industrial system.
2. Identify and specify the interface requirements between electronic, electrical and mechanical transducers and controllers.
3. Apply practical and computer-based methods to design and test a measurement system.
4. Apply appropriate analytical techniques to predict the performance of a given system.
