Catalog Description: An overview of design techniques with particular interest to industrial requirements. Fedback implementation: Transducers, sensors, and signal conditioning. Implementation of various types of control actions and servo control. Laboratory.
Coordinator: M. Kemal Cılız, Assoc.Professor of Electrical Engineering


Goals: This course aims to introduce the basic concepts of sensors and actuators used in control systems. It also covers design techniques for control of physical systems. The laboratory for the course covers topics discussed in the class. 


Learning Objectives:


At the end of this course, students will be able to:


Understand how various sensors and actuators work in process control .
Understand servo control concepts.
Design lead-lag controllers for control of physical processes.
Design a PID controller for a given set of specifications.

Position, velocity and acceleration measurement (Bateson)

Force and temperature measurement (Bateson)

Flow, pressure measurement devices (Bateson)

Armature and field controlled DC motors (Ogata)


Controller design (Theory)

Proportional (P), Proportional-Derivative (PD), Proportional-Derivative-Integral (PID) Controllers.

Course Structure: The class meets for three lectures a week, each consisting of 50-minute sessions. 4 sets of homework problems are assigned per semester.  There are one in-class mid-term exam and a final exam. There is also lab work required for the course.

Lab Resources: Students will use the lab sets (Feedback Instruments 33-000 Series Servo Trainer and Digiac 1750 Sensor and Actuator Lab.


Laboratory Experiments:


There are 4 experiments to be completed by each student. Laboratory reports are required for each experiment (to be handed to the Course Assistant) after completion of the experiments.

        Experiment 1:     Understanding sensors and transducers.

        Experiment 2:     Actuators and output components.

        Experiment 3:     Thermal Process Control.

        Experiment 4:     PID Control of a DC Motor.




   Midterm Exam    %25

   Final                  %40

   HWs                  %10

   Lab                    %25


Outcome Coverage:


(a) Apply math, science and engineering knowledge. This course covers the basic fundamentals for system control design and implementation concepts. It requires basic control theory, linear algebra and differential equations  knowledge.

(c) Design a system, component or process to meet desired needs.  The students are required to design simple control algorithms for physical lab experiments.

(e) Ability to identify formulate and solve engineering problems. The course teaches the fundamentals to design and implement controllers.  Given certain design specs, students are required to come up with a controller design.

 (k) Use of modern engineering tools.   Lab experiments use lab training sets for sensors and actuators and servo feedback control.
