Robotics for Engineers

This course provides an overview of robot mechanisms, kinematics, motion kinematic, dynamics, and planning control. Topics include robotic system overview, rotational matrices, translational matrices, homogeneous and composite matrices, D-H algorithm representation, Lagrange-Euler formulation, and robot planning. At the end of the course, students shall design the robot, together with the complete mathematical modelling to implement the theories that have been learnt.

Electrical Drive System

This course begins by introducing the basic electrical drive system components. The modeling and equivalent system of the dc motor and induction motor will be derived. This will lead to the design of the drive system using flux controlled, voltage controlled, controlled rectifier, chopper controlled, scalar control.
