IETT 123

The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of the automatic feedback control loop and the various modes of control that can be used to accomplish a regulated output. Computer software programs are used to simulate control loops to introduce the concept, along with supporting mathematics. Students will study control objectives, quality, stability, and tuning methods and procedures. Electronic and computer based controllers will be studied along with the necessary circuits and algorithms. Practical lab projects will require students to connect electronic and computer based controllers to a variety of typical industrial systems, record system behaviour with computerized data collection equipment, and tune process loops to achieve optimum control. In addition, students trouble shoot and adjust controllers.
