Course Description

The following contents will be learned.
(1)Frequency characteristics of analog and digital signals, functions of measuring equipment(oscilloscopes, function generators and circuit testers) and handling in evaluation tests.
(2)Functions, principles, and structures related to the starting equipment, charging equipment, ignition equipment for automobiles.
(3)Function, principle, and structure of manual transmission and clutch and differential gear in power train system for automobiles.
In this lesson, knowledge, techniques, and attitudes regarding DP2, DP3, DP4 and DP5 will be acquired.
Lessons are primarily experiment and practice style.

Course Objectives

Students understand the basics of the frequency characteristics of analog and digital signals, and then apply the functions of measuring instruments (oscilloscopes, function generators, and circuit testers) appropriately. Students understand the functions, principles and structures of electric system (starting equipment, charging equipment, ignition equipment) and power train system (manual transmission, clutch, differential gear) for automobiles.

Grading Policy

The grade evaluation is based on 50% of the reports for the 1st to 4th lessons and 50% of the exam results for the 5th to 14th lessons, but it will be evaluated by deducting the attitude in the lessons. The lessons attitude is to be able to observe the "safety instructions in the first lessons, and the instructions on clothes and other matters in the practical training". The report will be submitted in the specified date. The exam will be held in the 15th lessons and will be explained after the exam.
