Mechatronic systems, mechatronic components and mechanisms, components and electronic circuits, the basic components of micro-computers and their use in mechatronic systems and methods of programming, design fundamentals of mechatronic systems, mechatronic applications.
The study of robotics concerns itself with the desire to synthesize some aspects of human function by the use of mechanisms, sensors, actuators, and computers. Obviously, this is a huge undertaking, which seems certain to require a multitude of ideas from various "classical" fields.
This course includes an introduction to the field of robotics, the mathematics used to describe positions and orientations in 3-space, the geometry of mechanical manipulators which is known as kinematics, the inverse manipulator kinematics, Jacobians: velocities and static forces, and manipulator dynamics.
In view of the current huge interest in renewable energy technology and their conversion requirements, power electronic converters are of outmost importance. In Wind, Solar and Fuel Cell technology, the raw voltage produced by them must be converted before they can be used in any practical applications.
This course focuses to familiarize the students with the utilization aspects of power engineering, more specifically the techniques of solid-state power conversions and their applications. To meet
industry requirement for power electronic engineers, adequate practical knowledge on power semiconductor devices, ac-dc, dc-dc, dc-ac converter topologies, their control techniques and typical applications in motor drives and other applications are emphasized.
