    Dear all,

    Exam times are selected

    • 08.01.19 10:00 - 14:00,
    • 15.01.19 10:00 - 14:00,

  • Exam Times | 22.11.2018 16:17 | by Kristina Vassiljeva

    Dear all,

    e-mails through ois.ttu.ee system were sent with the link to doodle pool.

    You need to select 3 most suitable times for you. Every week we will have no more than one exam, thus date with the most votes from you will be selected.

    Pool will be closed in 5 days.

  • Practical works | 05.11.2018 09:57 | by Kristina Vassiljeva

    Dear All!

    Next week (12.11-16.11) is given to defend all previous works which data is needed for PID tuning (Lab 6 and 7).

    If you have some unfinished works or you haven't done some of the works on schedule, this is the time to do it.

    NB! Because we use different equipment I need to prepare your working place. Thus, if you wish to do some work, you need to write me 9.10 at what time (see out general timetable) and what work you would like to do.

  • Homeworks | 16.10.2018 18:02 | by Kristina Vassiljeva

    Dear all,

    Homework 1 assignment is available. Deadline is stated on the task page.

  • Exercise 5.1 | 16.10.2018 16:59 | by Kristina Vassiljeva

    Dear all,

    Solution for Ex 5.1 is added as promissed.

  • Audience Groups | 12.09.2018 12:10 | by Kristina Vassiljeva

    Dear all,

    Starting from the next week (17.09) we have practical works.

    I have 53 students who has declared this course. On the other hand, only 45 students have registered to Audience Groups in ois2.ttu.ee system.

    Those 8 peope who hasn't registered yet does not have any preference among participants and availability of free place is not guaranteed to them.

     

  • Pass to LAB (Uni-ID) | 15.08.2018 11:32 | by Kristina Vassiljeva

    NB! In order to use PCs in the laboratories, students should have an Uni-ID account. Uni-ID username firstname.lastname can be acquired from https://pass.ttu.ee, by logging in with your Estonian ID card. 

    If you don’t have an ID card, then you can acquire the password from IT HelpDesk.

Syllabus

Instructors: 

Semester: 

  • Autumn

Year: 

2018

Awarded ECTS points: 

6.0

Description: 

Realization of automation goals by technical instrumentation.

Policies: 

Policies: 

Course objectives:

  • To show control system design and control equipment types;
  • To describe PID controller types and tuning mechanisms;
  • Choice of the right sensor and actuator device for the process;
  • Efective representation of the information (HMI);
  • Ability to carry out the experiments and report its results.

Learning outcomes of the subject:

  • Knows and able to use electrical schemes;
  • Knows the most commonly used controllers and their operating principles;
  • Able to describe good and bad features of various controllers;
  • Understands the limitations that arise using simplified models in complex systems,
  • Understands representation of the systems;
  • Able to design simple SFS programs (A Structured Flow Charts);
  • Able to use instrumentation to test control systems;
  • Able to carry out laboratory tests on the system to achieve the desired results;
  • Able to determine system characteristics from experiments and simulations;
  • Able to select suitable sensors and actuators for the controller;
  • Able to use software to solve the control tasks.

Independent work:

Students have to be able to apply concepts and demonstrate understanding.

Additionaly homeworks have to be done during semester. Students have to be able to work with additional software:

  • Electrical CAD software PCSCHEMATIC Automation;
  • ABB Control Builder Plus based on CoDeSys Automation Platform.

Assessment methods:

  •  Home-works,
  •  PLC (training) + Laboratory works (Lab reports should be defended in 2 weeks after experiment was carried out).  

In general, 10 works (tasks) should be done.

Exam prerequisites:

All home-works must be done + at least 5 lavoratory works must defended.

The final grade consists of two parts: each defended work gives 5% (on time) or 2% (with delay) /max 10 x 5%/ and 50% exam.
