Instrumentation and Control

This module aims to provide the students with an understanding of concepts, components, analogue systems and digital systems for industrial measurements and process control. Building on WM102 and WM104, it equips students with knowledge on how different sensors, controllers and actuators, with their limits, can form different measurement, open-llop and closed-loop control systems. Examples, case studies and lab work underpin the learning of simple and moderately complex control systems: analogue, ON/OFF, PWM, multi-level, digital, proportional, integral, PI, PID. Applications are from process, automotive, railway, aerospace and manufacturing sectors form a base-line for specialist modules.
