ENGG 197 A-Z - Special Topics in Engineering

Semester Hours: 0-4

Advanced topics that are not covered in other engineering courses are discussed.

Current Special Topics

ENGG 197I (A): Fluid Power Mechatronics

This course focuses on the modeling, analysis, and control of fluid power systems in real-world applications.  Topics include:  fluid properties and fundamentals of fluid mechanics; hydraulic components: hydraulic control valves (pressure, flow, and direction), hydraulic pumps, and hydraulic actuators (linear and rotary); fundamentals of dynamic hydraulic systems (time response, frequency response, transfer functions, state-space equations, linearization, analogies, data-based dynamic modeling); feedback and feedforward hydraulic control design (root-locus, frequency-response, and state-space design, and digital control implementation); and hydraulic control systems (valve-controlled and pump-controlled).  Industrial case studies are covered.  Hardware demonstrations are included.  There is extensive use of MatLab / Simulink / SimHydraulics and relevant MatLab Toolboxes. 
Prerequisites: Prerequisite knowledge required is a basic understanding of fluid mechanics, dynamic system modeling and analysis, feedback control, and the use of MatLab / Simulink.  (ENGG 130 and 142)

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Permission of instructor. May be repeated for credit when topics vary. Specific titles and course descriptions for special topics courses are available in the online class schedule.
