Description

Instrumentation and Control first part introduces students to measurement and control systems. This includes capacitors, inductors and a wide range of sensors and their applications. 

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Design circuits to solve simple signal−conditioning and interfacing problems

2.

Describe the principle of operation, characteristics, and use of a selection of common electrical sensors and actuators

3.

Describe the concept of measurement and control systems, explain associated terminology, and perform calculations

4.

Design simple transistor switching circuits, using a load−line, and transistor parameters

5.

Describe the concept of measurement and control systems, explain associated terminology, and perform calculations on actual systems

Indicative Syllabus

This module introduces students to measurement and control systems. A range of sensors/actuators is examined, along with required signal−conditioning and digital interfacing. Initially, students are introduced to basic electrical principles, along with some electronic components and applications of same.

Electronic Devices (CONVENTIONAL CURRENT VERSION) , Ninth Edition, provides a solid foundation in basic analog electronics and a thorough introduction to analog integrated circuits and programmable devices. The text identifies the circuits and components within a system, helping students see how the circuit relates to the overall system function. Full-color photos and illustrations and easy-to-follow worked examples support the text's strong emphasis on real-world application and troubleshooting. Updated throughout, the ninth edition features new GreenTech Applications and a new chapter, "Basic Programming Concepts for Automated Testing."
