Automation and Process Control, CC
At the end of the program students will be able to:
- explain, discuss and describe the principles and theories related to basic process control instrumentation. Read and analyze instrumentation diagrams and documents. Design instrumentation and automation systems.
- devise control algorithms for automation systems. To that end, the students will learn to design relay logic and ladder logic diagrams. Ladder logic diagrams are the foundation for modern programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
- develop an understanding of advanced industrial measurement and control systems including detailed measurement and control strategies, advanced control systems and elementary process modelling.
- design control schemes and analyze their closed loop stability of the control processes using the theory of control and software tools.
