HTW Dresden/C. Klotzsche

In the automation technology laboratory, students learn about control technology applications for different sub-processes in electrical engineering, process engineering, building technology and mechatronics. Classic and modern methods of process analysis and control engineering are used. With modern software tools, measurement data are processed and processes controlled, and the real system behavior is compared with simulations.

Introduction to the practical laboratory training

The experiments in the complex practikal training for students in the 6th to 7th semester refer to the engineering-oriented working methods of future graduates in automation technology. A given technical process is to be guided by a control or regulation system. By theoretical or experimental process analysis a simplified model for the design of continuous or digital controllers is developed. A refined model is used to simulate the designed controller over a larger working range and to confirm the design results. The hardware in the loop simulation takes into account practical requirements, e.g. for robustness of the control.

 

In the final implementation phase, the control system is put into operation on the real process.
