Description

For numerous practical applications especially for waste water treatment processes and incinerator plant processes following aspects will be teached

  • Major challenges and innovation drivers for Operational Technology (OT) (e.g. innovation rates by Industry 4.0 approaches, life cycles, complexity)
  • Fundamentals of structuring OT solutions
  • Basic automation principles (e.g. important add-ons to standard controllers, control loop pairing)
  • Advanced automation solutions (e.g. complexity reduction by alarm management, controller performance management, Human Machine Interface, diagnostic functions and Advanced Process Control)
  • Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) as a functional interface between different aspects of OT (production, quality, inventory, maintenance)
  • Engineering and maintenance process for OT solutions and innovative solutions to support plant maintenance.

Information

  • Target audience: M.Sc. WASTE – Modules "Air Quality Control“ and "Waste Water“
  • Exam: Oral (30min)
  • Requirements: Modules “Measurements”, “Numerical Simulations” or “Modeling and Simulation of Processes”, Basics in Control Engineering
