Sensors and Actuators

Course Code: ELEC 255

Academic Year: 2022-2023

This course provides an introduction to sensors and actuators used in electrical and pneumatic industrial applications. The topics include sensing principles for the measurement of motion, force, torque, pressure, flow, and temperature using analog and digital transducers as well as actuating principles for control valves, continuous drive actuators, and stepper motors. In addition, the students will become familiar with the basic fundamentals of pressure controlled ON-OFF valves and actuators. Various components will be experimentally tested and analyzed.
