Learn the basic building-blocks of fluidic systems (pump, valve, cylinder, etc.) and to assemble them with electro-mechanical elements into sophisticated electro-hydraulic components. These can be used in motion, pressure and flow control applications, such as a fuel pressure regulation and injection system.
Understand the fundamental principles and key design issues of communication systems, from basic analog filters, amplifiers and modulation circuits, to advanced analysis of digital and switched-capacitor filters, AGC and PLL functions, and signal integrity of data communication networks.
Understand motion control systems, from simple analog PID to sampled data algorithms, switching power circuits, complex sensors, actuators and mechanisms. Work with colleagues to integrate stepper motors, solenoids, hydraulics and LVDTs, and to assess system-level performance and stability.
Explore DC, single- and 3-phase power systems, from basic power flow to advanced magnetic saturation and core loss, load harmonics and system stability. Supports team collaboration for load-balance, component sizing, fault protection and transient analysis.
