Condition -
The goal Introduce students to the basic notions and concepts of hydraulic and pneumatic systems Students will understand how these systems work, and what their advantages and disadvantages are.Passing through a complex cycle of design and synthesis control system: a mathematical model of the control system, components of a hydraulic actuator, a realization of the simulation model and develop control law.
The outcome Students will be able to model the systems in order to solve practical problems (like simulation and control). Understanding electro-hydraulics scheme and testing through the simulation. Experience of analysis and synthesis of hydraulic and pneumatic systems.
