Goals:
In this core subject the students are introduced to different key issues about control system design for industrial applications. A background on the most common controller design techniques used in industry will be provided, as well as an introduction to sequential systems for industrial automation. Special emphasis will be done in practical and technological aspects of control, introducing the most common control technologies such as computers, PLC's, sensors and actuators.

At the end of the course the student must be able to:
- Pose in a proper way the control problem from a real industrial scenario
- Understand the feedback principle and its fundamentals
- Understand the main control limitations
- Analyze a control system using sensitivity functions
- Plot and interpret a basic root locus
- Design controllers for simple control problems using root locus
- Understand the relationship between open-loop and closed loop frequency specifications
- Design controllers for simple control problems using frequency analysis techniques
- Obtain the control algorithm (difference equations) from a continuous controller using emulation techniques (Euler, Tustin)
- Know the main effects of sensors and actuators (nonlinearities, slow dynamics, delays, etc.) in closed loop systems
- Code and test of simple programs on a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)

Metodology and Assessment system:
The subject is composed of both lecture (blackboard, slides) and lab classes (laboratory, computer simulation and programming PLC).

The lecture classes will be graded by means of a written exam including problems and questions about the lectures, but it can also include questions about topics presented in lab classes.

The lab classes won't be mandatory but an exam will be done at the end of the term.

The grading of the whole subject will consider the score obtained both in the written and lab exam. A minimum mark of 4/10 will be required in the written exam.
