Basic behaviour of measurement devices: staticproperties, linearity, accuracy, inaccuracy, uncertainty, precision, repeatability, tolerance, range, span, bias, sensitivity of measurement and disturbance, hysteresis, dead space, treshold, resolution; dynamic properties, zero order system, first order system, second order system, higher order systems, time constant, natural frequency, damping factor, ...
Specification of measurement and control systems in time domain, frequency domain and s-domain: mean (average) and mean values, standars deviation and variance, frequency distributions (histogram), normal distribution, calibration curves: linear and higher order curve fitting to measured values, best fitting criteria: minimum of deviation, minimum of sum of squared errors, other criterias, correlation
Basic properties of systems and processes with static equations, differential equations and s-domain Laplace-equations and frequency domain (jw) equations.
Basic control blocks. Block diagrams and block diagram algebra.
Control systems in open and closed loop.
Simulation of control systems in time and frequency domain with Matlab-Simulink, MathCad, in real time domain with Codesys, (Simatic S7-300, MetsoDNA)
Tuning of controller, quality of control in time domain, frequency domain and s-domain
Many examples can and will be tested and demonstrated with matlab-simulink, mathcad and automation systems.
