Familiarise students with production system control tasks, and the implementation method of an automatic process control system, starting from the technical process level, over control systems to supervisory systems and the production process as a whole. Present the application of PLCs, SCADA systems and industrial communication systems, which form the basis for a practical implementation of automatic control of various processes.

Course description

Manufacturing system and an industrial plant. Control processes and stratification of control assignments. Informatisation and automatisation of a manufacturing system. Basic structure of automatic control processes. Practical examples. Measurement and process value displaying system. Automatic control system. Digital realisation of a controller. Process computer and a programmable logic controller. Linking a process computer with a process. Control unit – a central unit for an automatic control process. Structures of a processing unit: central and non-central, hierarchical and distributive. Regulatory unit – a subsystem for communication of an operator-manufacturing system and a process database. Structural regulatory units and the ways of providing services of a current automatisation system. Process and regulatory unit equipment. Communication systems for industrial application. Portable technologies/general purpose standards as the basis for the majority of industrial communication standards. Communication technologies on the level of fields and higher controlling levels. Specialised networks for programmable logic controllers. Software support in automatisation systems. User programming tools. Examples of systems for controlling and automatisation of manufacturing processes and supervision of an automatic manufacturing process. Information related to designing and maintaining automatisation systems.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. describe the control methods of complex technical (production) systems, and explain informatization and automation of production systems

2. describe the structure and working principles of a process computer and its realisation as a programmable logic controller

3. select PLC configuration and write controlling/user programme for simple and complex exercises

4. explain the advantages and disadvantages of (de)centralisation in the implementation of a process automation system

5. describe the role and structure of SCADA and its main interfaces

6. define the requirements for the communication system at different control levels, and choose a suitable communcation method for a specific purpose

7. establish communication (with several communication standards) using Simatic equipment
