This course is about methods and technologies that are commonly used in industrial control systems. The course includes PID controller design and tuning for industrial systems such as pneumatic, hydraulic, thermal and chemical systems. Industrial controllers with special structures such as cascade, feedforward and ratio control are also presented. PLC controllers and their programming languages are then introduced. Finally, plantwide industrial networks and their practical issues are covered.
