Intended learning outcomes

The object of this course is to give knowledge about design and functionality of mechatronic systems. This option concerns both the mobile and industrial sector as well as automation technology. The knowledge aims for the course are:

  • to convey knowledge about mechatronic systems with respect to control engineering and sensor technology.
  • to give knowledge about system design and calculation methods for dynamic analyses.
  • to convey profound knowledge about control principals with respect to controllability and energy consumption.
  • to give insight in measurement methods, signal conditioning, field bus systems and digital control systems.
The skill aims for the course are:
  • be able to use measurement methods and simulation tools for analyses of system dynamics.
  • be able to implement control algorithms in mechatronic systems.
  • be able to adapt a technical specification on an effective system solution.

Course content

  • Basic theory: Modelling of components and systems.
  • Simulation technique: Simulation of system dynamics.
  • Measurement technique: Measurement of flow, velocity, position, tempe-rature, pressure etc. Background of energy technology, system aspects, sensors and signal processing. Servo systems for control of position, velocity and force. Control principles and dynamic behaviour. Distributed digital control systems, signal conditioning and field bus systems.

Teaching and working methods

The teaching consists of lectures, lessons and laboratory exercises.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
