Instrumentation and Electrical Measurement (SEE 1123)

This course introduces students some of the metrological terminologies used in experimental methods, concept of metrology and its application. The course will also provide understanding the concept of standardization as the management system of standards and quality. The measurement technique for electrical quantity and analysis of the result according to ISO Guide will be introduced as well. It will examine transducers in order to gain an awareness of what they can do. Transducer operations, characteristic and functions will be discussed.

Control:Modeling & Simulation (SEE 2113)

This course introduces students to the fundamental ideas and definitions of control systems such as block diagrams, plants or processes, open loop and close loop control systems, transfer functions and transient and steady state responses.  Students will be taught how to obtain mathematical models of actual physical systems such as electrical, mechanical, electromechanical and simple fluid flow systems.  Methods of system representation such as block diagram representation and signal flow graphs will be examined.  The students will also be exposed to techniques of analysing control systems such as time domain analysis and stability.  Finally, an introduction to the design and analysis of control systems using MATLAB will also be given.

Control : Analysis & Design (SEE 3113)

This subject covers the analysis of the system’s stability and performance of the control system by using the time domain and frequency domain approaches. The PID controller is used to improve the transient and steady state performances in the time domain approach. In the frequency domain approach, bode plot method is utilised. The lead, lag and led-lag compensators are introduced in improving the performance of the control system using the frequency approach.

Circuit Theory (SKEE 1123)

This course introduces students to the basic laws, theorems and methods of DC and AC circuit analysis such as Ohms law, Kirchhoff Current and Voltage Laws, Thevenin and Norton theorems, concept of series and parallel circuits etc. Based on these, the students are expected to be able to solve for variables in any given DC and AC electric circuits. The course also provides the students with the basic understanding of operational amplifiers (op-amp) and how nodal analysis can be applied to various types of ideal op-amp circuits. With the knowledge learned, the student would be able to apply the basic laws, theorem and methods of analysis for solving completely with confidence various problem in circuit analysis.
