  • 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.
