Course objective:
Upon completion of this course, students should obtain knowledge and skills from different fields of the automatic control, as the lowest level of hierarchical management structure manufacturing enterprise. From the point of view of the knowledge, students meet main dynamic systems which can be described as individual technological aggregates and their methods of control. From the viewpoint of the skills, the main attention is focused on mastering classic and modern methods and instruments suitable for analysis and synthesis of problems in the field of automatic control.
Course methods: Tutorials especially deal with mathematical techniques leading to the analysis, design and setup of the individual elements of the system of automatic control. Lessons are properly complemented by educational programs.
Course content:
Basic concepts and definition of the subject content, system approach, controlled system, control system, feedforward and feedback control, basic types of regulation circuits. (allowance 2/1)
2.Logic circuits, their types and applications, truth table, minimization, logic diagrams. (allowance 3/4)
Identification and description of the dynamic systems, their basic characteristics and properties. (allowance 3/3)
Block diagrams, regulation circuit and its functions. (allowance 2/2)
5.Regulators, their description, meaning, properties and realization. (allowance 2/2)
Accuracy, stability and optimum setting of the regulation circuits. (allowance 4/4)
7.Methods of measurement, transmission and processing of information from technological processes. (allowance 2/1)
Sensors for measuring of non-electric values, principles and typical applications for measuring of temperature, pressure, flow, position and level positions. (allowance 2/1)
Usage of control computers and PLC in automatic control systems. (allowance 2/4)
Problems of optimal control, the importance of computer models for the design, implementation and operation of automatic systems of control of technological processes. (allowance 2/2)
Learning outcomes and competences:
After completing the course, student:
Will analyze and design basic parameters of optimal control
Will design an automated control system with the application of Fuzzy Logic Control principles
Will design measuring chains for sensing basic non-electrical quantities
Will explain principles of automatic control and will be able to design simple control circuits and mathematical models for control and setting of controllers' parameters
