  • Exam | 09.12.2016 12:33 | by Kristina Vassiljeva

    Dear all,

    Let me remind you that exam prerequisities are

    1. All home works must be done,
    2. At least 5 laboratory works should be defended.

    Only if these conditions are satisfied student has a right attend the exam. 

  • Homeworks | 18.11.2016 16:52 | by Kristina Vassiljeva

    Second homework assignment is available.

    1. Assignment.
    2. Notes about modules and different data types usage.
    3. ABB help file about physical parameters of the controller and its modules.
  • Defences | 15.11.2016 11:10 | by Kristina Vassiljeva

    Dear all,

    There won't be any defences after the next lecture on 16.11.
    You can defend you laboratory works on Thursday during the consultation time or after the Practice.

  • Audience groups | 16.09.2016 11:54 | by Kristina Vassiljeva

    Dear all!

    Registration to laboratory works is opened.

    You can find the times of Audience groups in http://ois.ttu.ee system. Open tab Study Plans - Registration to Audience Groups. Then Select the right course: Control Instrumentation. If course is selected you can see pen image (edit) in front of it. Click on pen image and select the time for the practical work.

    NB! First training will be on  Monday 19.09. In order to use ABB PLC you need an UNI-ID.

  • Uni-ID | 16.09.2016 11:21 | 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: 

2016

Awarded ECTS points: 

5.0

Description: 

Realization of automation goals by technical instrumentation.

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;
  • Eective 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.
