Equipment set TP 1013: Basic principles of control technology

Control technology explained simply and comprehensibly

The training package Basic principles of control technology provides a fast and easy-to-understand introduction to the topic of controllers and controlled systems.

The basic terminology of control technology, the behaviour of various controllers and the structured analysis of requirements for controlled systems are particularly important here.

Ways and means of analysing and solving control problems are shown and looked at in depth through experiments during the projects.

The equipment set permits fast and flexible construction of different controllers and thus allows simple inspections of behaviour based on the interaction with controlled systems of different types.

All parts of the equipment set are completely equipped with safety plug connections. The Combiboard Digital and Control Technology EduTrainer contained in the equipment set provides the required supply voltages for all tests and also contains a square-wave generator with 7 different output frequencies. This Combiboard EduTrainer is also used in the training package Digital technology.

The exercises in the workbook contain concrete, realistic projects with problem descriptions, parameters and project tasks.

The workbook contains:

  • Sample solutions
  • Educational instructions
  • Multimedia USB-Stick with or download access to graphics
  • Worksheets for learners

The worksheets support the learner in the information and planning phase as well as with execution, monitoring and documentation.

All exercises require independent performance, evaluation and documentation from the learner.
