Training course description:
This process control training course is designed to cover all basis and advanced functions of SIEMENS PLC design and programming, such as S7-1200, S7-1500, S7-300 and S7-400. Students need to have some PLC programming experience as covered in the training course PLC475: PLC Hardware, Programming and Design. All basic and advanced functions necessary to create a complete PLC control logic using function blocks and/or ladder logic will be explained and demonstrated.
Using the Siemens Tia Portal engineering software, the students will learn how to define and specify appropriate PLC and visualization system (HMI or SCADA) inside of Tia Portal. They will learn how to build tags, design PID and cascade control loops, build and test advanced process control loops and logic, create bumpless transfer and safety logic and many other process control functionalities already embedded inside the Tia Portal.
Also, the students will learn how to build graphics, alarms, trends and logs inside of HMI or SCADA visualization systems. How to connect one or more PLCs with one or multiple HMI or SCADA systems using ProfiBus or ProfiNet communication protocols, and many other powerful visualization features. All designed functionalities inside the PLC or HMI / SCADA systems will be simulated using PLCIM (PLC simulator) and HMI / SCADA Runtime emulators.
The goal of this process control training course is to teach and show how to build all process control logic inside of Tia Portal necessary to make a SIEMENS PLC do what is required in any industrial environment. Moreover, this process control training course will give you knowledge and experience to build HMI and /or SCADA visualization systems inside of Tia Portal.
The good prerequisite for this model predictive control training course is:
Students get a chance to learn how to:
