This course reviews basic electrical principles and covers amplifier theory as applied to open loop and closed loop control. Proportional directional valves, flow control valves and pressure control valves are discussed along with hydraulic servo valves. Proper setup alignment of the drive amplifiers and troubleshooting of servo and proportional control systems are covered in class and laboratory sessions. Closed loop (PID) control theory and feedback transducers are also discussed.
