Unit Code: MCD642

Unit Name: Instrumentation & Control/Programmable Logic Controller

Description: Engineering technologists are expected to understand all aspects of industrial process control (including process signals, measurement devices, final control elements, controllers and control schemes). In this course, you will examine analogue and discrete state processes. You will also conduct laboratory exercises to supplement your study of pneumatic, electronic, digital and microprocessor-based measurement devices, transmitters, final control elements, PID controllers and programmable logic controllers (PLCs).

Learning Target Outcomes: On successful completion of this course, students should be able to: 1. Apply correct instruments to sense various physical stimuli 2. Design an analogue control system loop by consideration of its forward path and feedback elements 3. Apply principles in designing and implementing a simple control system. 4. Demonstrate how to analyze block diagrams. 5. Design logical circuits based on Boolean algebra principles and circuits to convert analogue & digital 6. Demonstrate signals using operational amplifiers. 7. Distinguish the relations between block diagrams and transfer functions. 8. Distinguish inputs and outputs in closed and open loops. 9. Demonstrate the relationship between block diagrams and loop systems
