BSc Project (Automation and Control)

2018/2019

Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

Knowledge, skills and competencies equivalent to having passed the 5th semester

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Purpose
The project must be based on a physical process. The process can be mechanical, thermal, electrical, biologic or chemical. A dynamic model of the process has to be developed. The model has to be adjusted and verified through measurements. Demands as well in the time as in the frequency domain has to be listed. Using the dynamic model a classic and/or a state space controller are designed and implemented on the process. The controllers have to be evaluated and compared to the demands.

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Must have knowledge of how to design and analyse control systems
  • Must be able to understand and implement dynamic modelling,
  • The control design should follow up with the model-base approaches, i.e., either classic or modern controller design.
  • Must be able to implement the designed controller in its equivalent digital format, and be able to analyse this discretization influence

Skills

  • Must be able to analyse dynamic systems in time and frequency domain
  • Must be able to analyse and apply model based controller design methods, including classical and modern methods
  • Must be able to apply theoretical and experimental modelling principles for mechanical, thermodynamic, biological or chemical systems to develop their corresponding dynamic model with the orientation for control design purpose
  • Must be able to analyse and apply numerical methods for simulating dynamic systems
  • Must be able to evaluate industrial control and supervision methods.
  • Must be able to communicate the above knowledge and skills (using proper terminology of the field), both orally and in a written report

Competences

  • Shall be equipped with all necessary knowledge to be qualified as a control engineer
  • Must be able to select and extract relevant features and apply these in a new context
  • Must be able to plan, structure and execute a project, within the subject-field of this project module

Type of instruction

Project work with supervision.

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 20 ECTS project module, the work load is expected to be 600 hours for the student
