Mechatronics 1

Course Code: ATMN 152

Academic Year: 2020-2021

This course is an electronics course for electromechanical students. The use of the oscilloscope in measurement of DC and AC waveforms and in troubleshooting of electronic circuits will be presented and reinforced in all laboratory experiments. AC OHM's Law, reactance, impedance, series and parallel resonance will be covered. The operation of solid state electronic devices - rectifiers, Zener diodes, voltage regulators, small signal and power transistors - will be discussed in theory and laboratory experiments. Measurement of the performance of these devices will be made in the laboratory using digital multimeters and oscilloscopes by observation of input and output waveforms. Practical application of the above devices in industrial automation and control will be stressed in the lectures and laboratory experiments.
