Prerequisite
Control System Engineering and Digital Control System
Rationale
The course provides the student with basic knowledge of the industrial automation systems design, installation, modification, mainte nance, and repair. Automation is the aura of any industry. It has found its place and importance in Industries to handle any sophisticated process to increase the productivity. In consequence, automation experts play a quintessential role in Industries which systematize the Plant operations. It explores to the technology of Industrial Automation and Control as widely seen in factories of all types both for discrete and continuous manufacturing. The course discusses a wide range of related topics from the advantage and architecture of automation systems, measurement systems including sensors and signal conditioning, discrete and continuous variable control systems, hydraulic, pneumatic and electric actuators, industrial communication and embedded computing and CNC Machines.
Course Outcome
After the successful completion of this course, the student will be able:
1. To identify potential areas for automation and justify need for automation
2. To select suitable major control components required to automate a process or an activity
3. To translate and simulate a real-time activity using modern tools and discuss the benefits of automation.
4. To identify suitable automation hardware for the given application.
5. To recommend appropriate modeling and simulation tool for the given manufacturing application.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
