Students of Power Electronics engineering should have basic skill of controlling any system. Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is a very important device to control any system and is widely used in industries now a day. Therefore the person who wants to work in control and automation industries must have enhance knowledge of PLC. This course gives a detailed knowledge and practice of PLC programming.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Ccompare conventional sequential control with programmable logic control system
2. Develop programs using different PLC programming languages for sequential and continuous process
3. Interface analog and digital input/ output devices with PLC using different communication protocol
4. Test the PLC based system and troubleshoot the errors associated with it.

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.
