Aims

The module aims to introduce students to mechatronics systems and to equip them with the fundamental knowledge to understand, design and implement the control of typical mechatronics systems involving servomotors and feedbacks.

Outline Of Syllabus

(1) Introduction to mechatronic systems, control concepts and mathematical modeling using transfer functions and block diagrams; effects of system zeros and poles on system responses
(2) Standard signals and system responses: step, ramp and sinusoidal inputs;
(3) First and second order systems transient and steady state responses:
(4) Frequency Response: Bode plots and stability margins
(5) Controller types and design: Proportional, Integral and Derivative modes, and design of PID, and discrete PID control algorithms (position and velocity algorithms)
(6) Embedded systems: controller, real time requirement, sampling issues
(7) Case Study: motion control systems in machine tools and robotics as examples of mechatronics systems; regulation and trajectory tracking
(8) Simulink exercise
