3-3-4

Characteristics of instruments used in mechanical systems for determining parameters such as temperature, pressure, and flow are studied. The use of these devices in automated systems is covered. Furthermore, the elements of control theory, selection of control modes, and application to mechanical systems are studied. Laboratory exercises illustrating the use of pertinent instrumentation for determining the performance of mechanical equipment are conducted.
