Course: Hierarchical PLC Systems for Automatization
ECTS points: 6 ECTS
Number of classes per week: 3+0+0+3
Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Mile Stankovski
Course Goals (acquired competencies): This course will introduce the students to the concepts of hierarchical PLC systems. With the completion of the course, the students will become capable of working with networked and multilayered hierarchical PLC systems, and of designing more complex PLC systems by considering all necessary hardware and software related factors.
Course Syllabus: PLC as a part of the distributed and hierarchical control systems. Communication protocols between PLCs form different suppliers. Interoperability standards. System integration platforms for PLCs.
