Course Description


This course covers the industrial control systems, relating to manual and automatic system control directed towards industrial applications and includes electromagnetic control and solid state control. The course also deals with components of a control system such as the contactors, relays, pilot devices, push button switches, master switches circuit breakers, manual and automatic starters for AC and DC motors, electrical braking methods, speed control methods, inverters and choppers.

Practical circuits are analyzed to promote and strengthen the mathematical and analytical capabilities of the students, and to help them understand & apply their concepts in the design and implementation of electrical systems.
