Mechanical Components and Electrical Drives

Course Code SMSC-102
Course Name Mechanical Components and Electrical Drives
Category Engineering Technology & Applied Science
Description This course covers the basics of mechanical components and electrical drives in a complex mechatronic system. Based upon a physical system, students will learn the basic functions and physical properties of mechanical components, as well as electrical drives (AC and DC), and the roles they play within the system. They will also learn about mechanical components, which lead and support the energy through a mechanical system, to increase efficiency, and to reduce wear and tear. Materials, lubrication requirements and surface properties will be examined. Technical documentation, such as data sheets, and specifications of mechanical elements and electrical drives, will also be covered.

By understanding the interconnecting of the complete system, students will learn and apply troubleshooting strategies to identify, localize and correct malfunctions, where possible. Preventive maintenance of mechanical elements and electrical drives, as well as safety issues within the system, will be discussed.
Notes Notes:
Space is limited! Registration is on a first come, first served basis.
