This course introduces the key concepts and components that form the subsea control system. A subsea control engineer must be comfortable in dealing with a multitude of engineering concepts at the basic level. Subsequently, this course borrows from concepts in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, environmental engineering, civil and structural engineering and hydraulics to name a few. The course tends to give a high-level systemic introduction of the various fundamental aspects necessary for a well-operating subsea control system.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
Topics covered in the course include (but are not limited to):
· Subsea control systems.
· Umbilical and control lines.
· Electrical Power management.
· Sizing of hydraulics.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
Continuous assessment consists of two homework assignments, each accounting for 10% of the course.
Penalties for late or non-submission of in-course work are as follows:
For late submission, 1
CGS mark will be deducted for each late day
(ii) For non-submission, a CGS mark of 0 will be awarded
