This course introduces students to the complexity of automating machines. Building on previous machine design and electric circuit's courses, students will investigate and experiment with all aspects of electrical systems, mechanical systems and automatic control. Topics covered include: history of machines, how machines work, concept of control, human interaction, instruments and measurements, control schematics, AC/DC machines and transformers, programmable technology, power electronics, electric motors, protection systems, and industrial safety. Labs involve reverse engineering exercises and industrial field trips are used to enhance understanding. Three lecture hours and three lab hours per week. 07-01-2020-02-04-2020 Lecture Tuesday, Thursday 01:00PM - 02:15PM, School Sustainable Design Eng, Room 128B
