EMET 5004  Instrumentation

Credits: 4.00 Credits

This course introduces the student to general characteristics of electromechanical sensors and transducers, electrical measurement systems, electronic signal conditioning, data acquisition systems, and response characteristics of instruments. The lectures focus on the selection, calibration techniques and applications of electromechanical transducers. The laboratory has industrial equipment, such as a punch press, drill press, and metal lathe, which are equipped with sensors that are configured to measure physical quantities such as force, strain, displacement, velocity, and acceleration. Data acquisition and real-time software applications are applied in a laboratory environment.

EMET 5900  Directed Study

Credits: 1.00 TO 6.00 Credits

A student may contract for one to six credit hours of independent study through an arrangement with an instructor who agrees to direct such a study. The student will submit a plan acceptable to the instructor and to the department chairperson. The instructor and student will confer regularly regarding the process of the study.

EMET 6004  Feedback Control Systems

Credits: 4.00 Credits

Feedback control systems with topics in time response, stability, criteria, system representation, root locus diagrams, and compensation. The systems include electrical, mechanical, and electromechanical networks. The laboratory features simulation of electrical and mechanical systems using MATLAB and SIMULINK as well as a variety of physical controllers.
