Workshop - Electro technology, Hydraulic and Pneumatic





Offered by

Mechanical Engineering




Main purpose

Electro technology:
Give the student practical experience in DC/AC circuits and DC electrical motors

Hydraulic and Pneumatic:
Give the student practical experience in basic pneumatic/hydraulic circuits and components.


Electro technology:
Understanding a DC series and parallel circuit:
- Ohm’s Law
- Kirchhoff’s Voltage and current Law
- Equivalent resistors
Understanding of AC circuit both single and three phases:
- Single phase impedance connection
- Star-Y and Delta-∆ resistors connection
- Investigate Electrical drivetrain of DC-motor and understand their characteristics
Hydraulic and Pneumatic:
Understanding the following in basic circuits:
- Regulate speeds in hydraulic systems
- Control forces for hydraulic circuits
- Basal difference in the use of pneumatic and hydraulic circuits
- Functions of different types of system components


Electro technology:
Using a multi-meter to measure DC/AC quantities, such as
voltage, current and resistance.
Build a DC-circuit at a bread board
Assembly of an electrical DC/AC drivetrain and be able to investigate its characteristics

Hydraulic and Pneumatic:
How to regulate speeds in hydraulic systems
How to control forces for hydraulic circuits
Knowing the basal difference in the use of pneumatic and hydraulic circuits
Knowing the functions of different types of system components



Electro technology:
After the course, participants will have gained insight into voltage drop and current distribution in a DC-circuit.
Furthermore, understand the different in star versus delta connection for three phase AC-circuit and the relationship between speed and torque curve for a DC motor

Hydraulic and Pneumatic:
After the course, participants will have gained insight into how hydraulic systems is build up and what to do to control it. Furthermore, in which way hydraulic and pneumatic systems work differently and what the different types of components can be used for, in basic systems.
