The subject is aimed at providing the knowledge of different automation systems currently used in industry and provides the base for the design and programming of such systems. The teaching objectives can be listed here below: o programming PLC o learn the basis of discrete and continuous control o know the principle of operation of the main industrial devices used in automation
The subject aims at providing the basic knowledge on the automation systems currently used in industry, emphasizing the aspect of design and programming of such systems. The professional profile that the course intends to train is the designer of automatic and mechatronic systems The teaching objectives can be listed here below: o programming PLC o learn the basis of discrete and continuous control o know the principle of operation of the main industrial devices used in automation.
The student will be able to solve also complex problems concerning automation by simplification of the problem in single phases and translate this in a program to implement in a programmable logic controller (PLC).
At the end of the semsetrer the student will be asked to: • know the main devices to set up an automatic system • apply the main programming languages and techniques • solve also complex problems concerning automation by simplification in single phases • implement in a programmable logic controller (PLC) the program • apply the knowledge on control systems in order to set-up simple closed loop control systems
Previous knowledge on applied mechanics isrequested. Base knowledge on pneumatics and control on mechanical systems is also appreciated.
