This course covers the basics of electrical components in a complex mechatronic system. Based upon a physical system, students will learn the basic functions and physical properties of electrical components, and the roles they play within the system. Technical documentation such as data sheets, schematics, timing diagrams and system specifications will also be covered. By understanding the complete system, the flow of energy through the system and measurements on the components, students will learn and apply troubleshooting strategies to identify, localize and correct malfunctions. Preventive maintenance and safety issues for electrical components within the system will be discussed. Pre-requisite: instructor consent.
