PCS 7 Modules
500 Process Automation (PA) – University Curriculums Version 7.0
With the PCS 7 curricula, basic PCS 7 knowledge can be taught to students of universities and technical colleges within approximately 60 hours (= 1 semester). This is achieved through the hands-on exercises and one plant simulation.
In this module, readers will learn the functional principle of an automation system. You can configure the PCS 7 hardware and check it for consistency. Settings are parameterized so that the PCS 7 process control system can use the information to autonomously create all the blocks in the automation stations required for communication between sensors, actuators and the control level.
In this module, readers learn how to define and categorize individual drive functions. They will learn how to understand the concept, structure, and functional principle of individual control functions, and they will get to know typical individual drive functions as well as their implementation in PCS 7.
In this module, readers will learn about the fundamentals of alarm logging. They will understand the purpose and the application areas of alarm logging systems and they will learn the resulting requirements of such systems. They will learn how to design a suitable and workable alarm management system in PCS 7.
