Mechatronics - ME1-HMTX
- To introduce Mechatronics as a fundamental concept for modelling and designing machine systems, and to encourage electrical systems to be modelled in a manner compatible with mechanical systems using 'system' concepts;
- To develop an ability to design, and select components for simple electromechanical systems using mains powered a.c. and d.c. supplies, batteries, relays, switches and d.c. motors and simple electronic measurement systems using transducers and meters;
- To develop mastery of modelling concepts which have direct equivalents in mechanical systems theory, e.g. equivalent characteristics, operating diagrams, complex impedance, referred impedance;
- To familiarise sufficient verbal and conceptual vocabulary to communicate effectively with electrical engineers on the design of mechatronic systems.
