Tournier Jean-Charles

Language:

English

Remarque

This course can be taken by students of all engineering sections.

Summary

This course consists of two parts: 1) architecture of control systems, hands-on lab 2) handling of faults and failures in real-time systems, including fault-tolerant computing

Content

1. Processes and plants, control system architecture
2. Instrumentation, Programmable Logic Controllers and embedded computers
3. Industrial communication networks, field busses
4. Field device access protocols and application program interfaces
5. Human interface and supervision
6. Manufacturing Execution Systems
8. Real-time response and performance analysis
9. Dependability (Reliability, Availability, Safety, ...)

Keywords

Industrial Automation considers the control, communication and software in real-time systems: factories, energy production and distribution, vehicles and other embedded systems.

Industrial Automation encompasses the whole chain from sensors, motors, controllers, communication networks, operator visualization, archiving and up to manufacturing execution systems and enterprise resource management. It includes fault-tolerance against hardware and software faults and the evaluation methods.

This application-oriented course does not require previous knowledge in control theory. It complements communication systems courses with a focus on industrial application.
