Module Description: To provide an intermediate level module in automation. The module includes some of the more advanced aspects of PLC utilization in industry, the use of SCADA in providing process automation and the use of DeltaV in automated environments.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 analyse the theory of operation of SCADA and its applications
LO2 write compile and debug advanced PLC programs using a number of languages
LO3 demonstrate the theory,the operation and uses of commercial automation packages such as DeltaV
LO4 write compile and debug programs to develop mimic and control panels using a commercial SCADA package such as WinnCC and InTouch
LO5 write compile and debug programs to automate processes using DeltaV
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
