OVERVIEW

 

The course aims to provide on the one hand the tools for understanding , identification and analysis of hydraulic and pneumatic components and systems, and on other hand  elements of a deepening of their use in industrial automation systems, through theoretical and experimental approaches.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Pneumatics: air  treatment and distribution. Compressors. Actuators. Pneumatic and electro-pneumatic valves, on/off and proportional. Circuit  components  and selection criteria. Pneumatic circuits for automation. Dynamic models. Special pneumatic components. Hydraulics: characteristics and fluid treatment. Pumps and motors. Commands and controls on / off, proportional and servo- assisted. Criteria for the selection of components. Hydraulic circuits for automation. Dynamic models. Hydrostatic transmissions for automation. CAD / CAE for fluid systems: modeling of circuits, simulation, computerized catalogs. Sensors and transducers for automatic fluid circuits. Integrated sensors. Interfacing with microprocessor control units: hardware and software architectures. Flexible automation in fluidic systems  via programmable logic controllers ( PLC),dedicated electronic units, industrial PCs. Distributed control systems : fieldbus , ASI . Specific aspects of pneumotronics and oleotronics . Innovative and "smart" components. Drives dedicated to specific applications: steering, anti-roll stabilizer fins, trim blades controllable pitch propellers.

TEACHING METHODS

The course includes, in addition to lectures and classroom exercises, the development of consistent laboratory activities. The students work directly in the construction of the drive circuits and in their dynamic simulation.
