Course detail

Programmable Logic Controllers

FSI-VPL-AAcad. year: 2017/2018

The course is intended to deepen the knowledge of control equipments and to supplement it with regulators with discontinuous and impulsive outputs. Next is course focused on structure and parameters of programmable logic controllers, their configurations and possibility their programming. Programmable logic controllers are by one of the most often used items at present automation technique. We can tell that the most of the control systems do not without programmable logic controllers.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Obtained skills: Students acquire graduation of course basic experience with works with programmable logic controllers. They are practically introduced with some types of programmable logic controllers and acquire general survey about next types. They will capable choose for concrete application suitable type of automata and make to him control program. Next student acquire experience about using regulators with discontinuous output.

Aims

Course objective: The main aim is to acquaint students with possibilities, which programmable logic controllers (PLC) show, with characterization of the single type and provide them detailed encompassment selected types. Students acquire graduation of course basic experience with works with programmable logic controllers. They are practically introduced with some types of programmable logic controllers and acquire general survey about next types. They will capable choose for concrete application suitable type of automata and make to him control program. The next aim is to acquaint students with principle and attributes of regulators with discontinuous output.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Attendance at lectures is recommended, attendance at seminars is required. It is at the teacher's discretion to decide how to make up for missed seminars.
