Course description and aims

In this lecture, mechanics, dynamics and control problems of electromechanical system such as printer and hard disk drive are presented. Examples of topics are paper transport characteristics of paper transport mechanism, access control of positioning mechanism of hard disk drive. Examples of control systems technology which are useful for realization of actual controller are also introduced.

Student learning outcomes

Aim of this lecture is acquirement of knowledge about familiar electromechanical systems and related control systems technology.

Students will learn about analytical method of paper transport characteristics, vibration-less access control method based on the optimal control theory.

Keywords
