Motion Contorl(Course 705 – 32 Hours)


This Motion Control course is designed to integrate the related engineering fields which share the outcome of every typical motion control system: system engineering concepts, electrical machinery and drives, power electronics, feedback devices technology and control theory. The practical nature of the course provides a focused, yet comprehensive and multidisciplinary overview of the main analysis and design methods of motion control systems.

Course Objectives:

The objective of this industry oriented course is to provide the core knowledge and the practical aspects of motion control analysis and design methodology in terms of: system topology, feedback devices, motor sizing, mechanical transmissions, power amplifiers, and PID control and system analysis.

Who Should Attend:

The course is mainly adequate to engineering staff involved in design and development of motion control systems. Support staffs (maintenance & service, sales, etc.) are encouraged to attend the course as a unique source to broaden their professional background.


Basic background in mechanics, electrical theory, control theory (graduate level).
