Contents of the Seminaristischer Unterricht (seminar-style lecture)

The new method of virtual commissioning (VIBN) allows PLC software to be tested at an early stage using a model of an automated plant or process. However, many other uses are possible.

Learning objectives

  • Knowledge of the possible applications of virtual commissioning (VIBN)
  • Evaluation of different software concepts and special requirements for the modelling software
  • Ability to perform a VIBN
  • Applying cross-discipline expertise

Dates

Summer and winter semester

Contents of the lecture

In the exercise course for the Engineering Informatics I lecture, the basic techniques for object-oriented programming are explored in depth using programming examples. The topics range from simple branching and multiple decisions to the manipulation of files. Conversion is carried out in C/C++.

Learning objectives

  • Knowledge of the basic structure of C++ programs
  • Analysis of technical programming problems
  • Planning of technical code implementation for problem solving
  • Working with the Integrated Development Environment Code::Blocks
  • Setting conditions for branching
  • Use of loops and arrays
  • File manipulation
  • Conversion between different number systems

Content of the practical course

During this practical course, successive experiments on common topics of control engineering will be carried out and the observed phenomena will be explained, thus reinforcing the methods and their application. They will serve as intensive preparation for the examination and for a deeper understanding of the material.

Learning objectives

  • Relationship between time and frequency range
  • Reading out and interpreting system properties from different display formats
  • Identification and stability of systems
  • Command and disturbance transfer function
  • Application and familiarization with P, I, PI and PID controllers, as well as compensation controllers with corresponding adjustment rules
  • Root locus and Nyquist locus curve, frequency-response characteristics
  • Amplitude and phase reserve
  • Getting to know and handling control signal limitations
  • Cascading system

Content of the practical course

During this practical course, the handling of the simulation program BORIS will be shown, applied in practical units and used, among other things, for the simulation of controlled systems and the identification of controller parameters. Secondly, the most important controller types (p, PI, PD, PID) will be dealt with and the influence of controller parameters on control loop behaviour during a control or disturbance leap will be examined. Finally, a short introduction to control technology will be given, in which a PLC is programmed using function diagrams and instruction lists.

Learning objectives

  • Analysis of an unknown controlled system in the stationary final value
  • Linear and non-linear characteristic curves
  • Operating point of a controlled system
  • Stationary characteristic values of the controlled system and parts of the controlled system
  • Determination of controlled system characteristic values with and without compensation
  • Simulation of controlled systems using BORIS
  • Differentiation between fault and control behaviour
  • Controller types P, PI, PD, PID
  • Influence of the controller parameters on control loop behaviour
  • Assessment and improvement of control accuracy
  • Implementation of physical equations in a block diagram
  • Illustration of the block diagram in a simulation program
  • Selection and adjustment of a suitable controller
  • Drawing up an assignment list, Process ⇔ PLC
  • Creation of function diagrams and instruction lists

  • Linearization of non-linear systems
  • Assessment of the stability of systems
  • Application of stochastic methods
