Solution for Worksheet 3.2.1

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

h max = h oB huB = 460mm 120mm = 340mm

kg m resulting in the unit s2 Nm P = 243.45 10 3 = 243.45 10 3W s

Explanation of the result No general solution for the capacity of the pump can be given as the value varies from system to system. Component tolerances in the pump, the setting of the motor regulator operating characteristic as well as differences in the piping system (curves, pumping head) can result in different delivery rates.

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.

What type of drive is it? How does it work? It is a semi-rotary drive with a scotch yoke. When the process valve is opened, the pistons move to the end caps. When the process valve is closed, the piston moves toward the shaft. The torque is generated by the scotch yoke. In contrast to rack and pinion drives is not constant throughout the angle of rotation. Benefit: The high breakaway torque of the valve is overcome. The range of motion of the drive is limited to 90 for use with equipment such as ball cocks and butterfly valves.

The analog pressure sensor is a piezoresistive relative pressure sensor with integrated amplifier and built-in temperature compensation in an aluminum housing. The pressure to be measured acts on the piezoresistive element. The resulting signal change is emitted via an integrated amplifier as a voltage at the connector. The maximum output voltage is 10V DC. The output signal can be measured with a voltmeter. The temperature of the medium to be measured must be within a certain range, namely between 25C und 100C. The measuring range is between 0 and 100 mbar or 0 and 400 mbar, depending on the sensor type (see data sheets).

This exercise involves examining the temperature sensor. Pt stands for the material out of which the measuring resistor is made.

Festo Didactic MPS PA Compact Workstation

39

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

The mean measured value can be taken as the operating point for the dynamic response of the control. The operating point should always be in the linear part of the sensor characteristic. The relationship between the input variable and the output variable that is the actual value and the manipulated variable is determined for the static response of the control when stationary. The manipulated variable should also be in the linear part of the actuator (pump).

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

The number e is the final value of the series: Final value Time steps e = 2.71832 (bitte Dezimalpunkt statt komma verwenden) How is the number e, the In the language of mathematics, the time constant is also termed a subtangent. PT1 elements smooth fast-changing signals (high frequencies) but let low frequencies pass. For this reason, they are also known as low-pass filters of the first order. They also generate a phase shift between the input signal and the output signal. The determination of time constants for higher-order controlled systems is described in detail in the workbook Control of temperature, flowrate and level), Chapter 2.3.3, Process analysis and modelling . The controlled system is in steady state after 5T. A controller for the controlled system should always be 8 10 times faster than the time constant to allow correct control.

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm).

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.

The analog pressure sensor is a piezoresistive relative pressure sensor with integrated amplifier and built-in temperature compensation in an aluminum housing. The pressure to be measured acts on the piezoresistive element. The resulting signal change is emitted via an integrated amplifier as a voltage at the connector. The maximum output voltage is 10V DC. The output signal can be measured with a voltmeter. The temperature of the medium to be measured must be within a certain range, namely between 25C und 100C.

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Festo Didactic MPS PA Compact Workstation

47

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

Transient responses of systems of different order

Once the order of the controlled system has been established, the time constant T of the controlled system can be determined graphically. For controlled systems of the 1st order, the time constant is determined as follows:

Bildtexte: The irrational number e the characteristic value for a steadily decreasing rate of increase calculated? The number e is the final value of the series: Final value Time steps e = 2.71832 (bitte Dezimalpunkt statt komma verwenden) How is the number e, the In the language of mathematics, the time constant is also termed a subtangent. PT1 elements smooth fast-changing signals (high frequencies) but let low frequencies pass. For this reason, they are also known as low-pass filters of the first order. They also generate a phase shift between the input signal and the output signal. The determination of time constants for higher-order controlled systems is described in detail in the workbook Control of temperature, flowrate and level), Chapter 2.3.3, Process analysis and modelling . The controlled system is in steady state after 5T. A controller for the controlled system should always be 8 10 times faster than the time constant to allow correct control.

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

h max = h oB huB = 460mm 120mm = 340mm

Explanation of the result No general solution for the capacity of the pump can be given as the value varies from system to system. Component tolerances in the pump, the setting of the motor regulator operating characteristic as well as differences in the piping system (curves, pumping head) can result in different delivery rates.

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.

What type of drive is it? How does it work? It is a semi-rotary drive with a scotch yoke. When the process valve is opened, the pistons move to the end caps. When the process valve is closed, the piston moves toward the shaft. The torque is generated by the scotch yoke. In contrast to rack and pinion drives is not constant throughout the angle of rotation. Benefit: The high breakaway torque of the valve is overcome. The range of motion of the drive is limited to 90 for use with equipment such as ball cocks and butterfly valves.

Solution for Worksheet 3.8.1

The analog pressure sensor is a piezoresistive relative pressure sensor with integrated amplifier and built-in temperature compensation in an aluminum housing. The pressure to be measured acts on the piezoresistive element. The resulting signal change is emitted via an integrated amplifier as a voltage at the connector. The maximum output voltage is 10V DC. The output signal can be measured with a voltmeter. The temperature of the medium to be measured must be within a certain range, namely between 25C und 100C. The measuring range is between 0 and 100 mbar or 0 and 400 mbar, depending on the sensor type (see data sheets).

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

The mean measured value can be taken as the operating point for the dynamic response of the control. The operating point should always be in the linear part of the sensor characteristic. The relationship between the input variable and the output variable that is the actual value and the manipulated variable is determined for the static response of the control when stationary. The manipulated variable should also be in the linear part of the actuator (pump).

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

PT1 elements smooth fast-changing signals (high frequencies) but let low frequencies pass. For this reason, they are also known as low-pass filters of the first order. They also generate a phase shift between the input signal and the output signal. The determination of time constants for higher-order controlled systems is described in detail in the workbook Control of temperature, flowrate and level), Chapter 2.3.3, Process analysis and modelling . The controlled system is in steady state after 5T. A controller for the controlled system should always be 8 10 times faster than the time constant to allow correct control.

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.

The analog pressure sensor is a piezoresistive relative pressure sensor with integrated amplifier and built-in temperature compensation in an aluminum housing. The pressure to be measured acts on the piezoresistive element. The resulting signal change is emitted via an integrated amplifier as a voltage at the connector. The maximum output voltage is 10V DC. The output signal can be measured with a voltmeter. The temperature of the medium to be measured must be within a certain range, namely between 25C und 100C. The measuring range is between 0 and 100 mbar or 0 and 400 mbar, depending on the sensor type (see data sheets).

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Festo Didactic MPS PA Compact Workstation

47

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

The order of the controlled system can be determined from the transient response curve of the controlled system:

Transient responses of systems of different order

Once the order of the controlled system has been established, the time constant T of the controlled system can be determined graphically. For controlled systems of the 1st order, the time constant is determined as follows:

The number e is the final value of the series: Final value Time steps e = 2.71832 (bitte Dezimalpunkt statt komma verwenden) How is the number e, the In the language of mathematics, the time constant is also termed a subtangent. PT1 elements smooth fast-changing signals (high frequencies) but let low frequencies pass. For this reason, they are also known as low-pass filters of the first order. They also generate a phase shift between the input signal and the output signal. The determination of time constants for higher-order controlled systems is described in detail in the workbook Control of temperature, flowrate and level), Chapter 2.3.3, Process analysis and modelling . The controlled system is in steady state after 5T. A controller for the controlled system should always be 8 10 times faster than the time constant to allow correct control.

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

h max = h oB huB = 460mm 120mm = 340mm

Explanation of the result No general solution for the capacity of the pump can be given as the value varies from system to system. Component tolerances in the pump, the setting of the motor regulator operating characteristic as well as differences in the piping system (curves, pumping head) can result in different delivery rates.

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.

What type of drive is it? How does it work? It is a semi-rotary drive with a scotch yoke. When the process valve is opened, the pistons move to the end caps. When the process valve is closed, the piston moves toward the shaft. The torque is generated by the scotch yoke. In contrast to rack and pinion drives is not constant throughout the angle of rotation. Benefit: The high breakaway torque of the valve is overcome. The range of motion of the drive is limited to 90 for use with equipment such as ball cocks and butterfly valves.

The analog pressure sensor is a piezoresistive relative pressure sensor with integrated amplifier and built-in temperature compensation in an aluminum housing. The pressure to be measured acts on the piezoresistive element. The resulting signal change is emitted via an integrated amplifier as a voltage at the connector. The maximum output voltage is 10V DC. The output signal can be measured with a voltmeter. The temperature of the medium to be measured must be within a certain range, namely between 25C und 100C. The measuring range is between 0 and 100 mbar or 0 and 400 mbar, depending on the sensor type (see data sheets).

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Festo Didactic MPS PA Compact Workstation

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.1

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

h max = h oB huB = 460mm 120mm = 340mm

kg m resulting in the unit s2 Nm P = 243.45 10 3 = 243.45 10 3W s

Explanation of the result No general solution for the capacity of the pump can be given as the value varies from system to system. Component tolerances in the pump, the setting of the motor regulator operating characteristic as well as differences in the piping system (curves, pumping head) can result in different delivery rates.

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.

What type of drive is it? How does it work? It is a semi-rotary drive with a scotch yoke. When the process valve is opened, the pistons move to the end caps. When the process valve is closed, the piston moves toward the shaft. The torque is generated by the scotch yoke. In contrast to rack and pinion drives is not constant throughout the angle of rotation. Benefit: The high breakaway torque of the valve is overcome. The range of motion of the drive is limited to 90 for use with equipment such as ball cocks and butterfly valves.

The analog pressure sensor is a piezoresistive relative pressure sensor with integrated amplifier and built-in temperature compensation in an aluminum housing. The pressure to be measured acts on the piezoresistive element. The resulting signal change is emitted via an integrated amplifier as a voltage at the connector. The maximum output voltage is 10V DC. The output signal can be measured with a voltmeter. The temperature of the medium to be measured must be within a certain range, namely between 25C und 100C. The measuring range is between 0 and 100 mbar or 0 and 400 mbar, depending on the sensor type (see data sheets).

39

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

The mean measured value can be taken as the operating point for the dynamic response of the control. The operating point should always be in the linear part of the sensor characteristic. The relationship between the input variable and the output variable that is the actual value and the manipulated variable is determined for the static response of the control when stationary. The manipulated variable should also be in the linear part of the actuator (pump).

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

PT1 elements smooth fast-changing signals (high frequencies) but let low frequencies pass. For this reason, they are also known as low-pass filters of the first order. They also generate a phase shift between the input signal and the output signal. The determination of time constants for higher-order controlled systems is described in detail in the workbook Control of temperature, flowrate and level), Chapter 2.3.3, Process analysis and modelling . The controlled system is in steady state after 5T. A controller for the controlled system should always be 8 10 times faster than the time constant to allow correct control.

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Festo Didactic MPS PA Compact Workstation

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.1

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

h max = h oB huB = 460mm 120mm = 340mm

Explanation of the result No general solution for the capacity of the pump can be given as the value varies from system to system. Component tolerances in the pump, the setting of the motor regulator operating characteristic as well as differences in the piping system (curves, pumping head) can result in different delivery rates.

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.

What type of drive is it? How does it work? It is a semi-rotary drive with a scotch yoke. When the process valve is opened, the pistons move to the end caps. When the process valve is closed, the piston moves toward the shaft. The torque is generated by the scotch yoke. In contrast to rack and pinion drives is not constant throughout the angle of rotation. Benefit: The high breakaway torque of the valve is overcome. The range of motion of the drive is limited to 90 for use with equipment such as ball cocks and butterfly valves.

The analog pressure sensor is a piezoresistive relative pressure sensor with integrated amplifier and built-in temperature compensation in an aluminum housing. The pressure to be measured acts on the piezoresistive element. The resulting signal change is emitted via an integrated amplifier as a voltage at the connector. The maximum output voltage is 10V DC. The output signal can be measured with a voltmeter. The temperature of the medium to be measured must be within a certain range, namely between 25C und 100C. The measuring range is between 0 and 100 mbar or 0 and 400 mbar, depending on the sensor type (see data sheets).

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

The mean measured value can be taken as the operating point for the dynamic response of the control. The operating point should always be in the linear part of the sensor characteristic. The relationship between the input variable and the output variable that is the actual value and the manipulated variable is determined for the static response of the control when stationary. The manipulated variable should also be in the linear part of the actuator (pump).

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

PT1 elements smooth fast-changing signals (high frequencies) but let low frequencies pass. For this reason, they are also known as low-pass filters of the first order. They also generate a phase shift between the input signal and the output signal. The determination of time constants for higher-order controlled systems is described in detail in the workbook Control of temperature, flowrate and level), Chapter 2.3.3, Process analysis and modelling . The controlled system is in steady state after 5T. A controller for the controlled system should always be 8 10 times faster than the time constant to allow correct control.

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

Explanation of the result No general solution for the capacity of the pump can be given as the value varies from system to system. Component tolerances in the pump, the setting of the motor regulator operating characteristic as well as differences in the piping system (curves, pumping head) can result in different delivery rates.

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.

The analog pressure sensor is a piezoresistive relative pressure sensor with integrated amplifier and built-in temperature compensation in an aluminum housing. The pressure to be measured acts on the piezoresistive element. The resulting signal change is emitted via an integrated amplifier as a voltage at the connector. The maximum output voltage is 10V DC. The output signal can be measured with a voltmeter. The temperature of the medium to be measured must be within a certain range, namely between 25C und 100C. The measuring range is between 0 and 100 mbar or 0 and 400 mbar, depending on the sensor type (see data sheets).

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Festo Didactic MPS PA Compact Workstation

47

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

The order of the controlled system can be determined from the transient response curve of the controlled system:

Transient responses of systems of different order

Once the order of the controlled system has been established, the time constant T of the controlled system can be determined graphically. For controlled systems of the 1st order, the time constant is determined as follows:

The number e is the final value of the series: Final value Time steps e = 2.71832 (bitte Dezimalpunkt statt komma verwenden) How is the number e, the In the language of mathematics, the time constant is also termed a subtangent. PT1 elements smooth fast-changing signals (high frequencies) but let low frequencies pass. For this reason, they are also known as low-pass filters of the first order. They also generate a phase shift between the input signal and the output signal. The determination of time constants for higher-order controlled systems is described in detail in the workbook Control of temperature, flowrate and level), Chapter 2.3.3, Process analysis and modelling . The controlled system is in steady state after 5T. A controller for the controlled system should always be 8 10 times faster than the time constant to allow correct control.

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

h max = h oB huB = 460mm 120mm = 340mm

Explanation of the result No general solution for the capacity of the pump can be given as the value varies from system to system. Component tolerances in the pump, the setting of the motor regulator operating characteristic as well as differences in the piping system (curves, pumping head) can result in different delivery rates.

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.

Solution for Worksheet 3.4.3

What type of drive is it? How does it work? It is a semi-rotary drive with a scotch yoke. When the process valve is opened, the pistons move to the end caps. When the process valve is closed, the piston moves toward the shaft. The torque is generated by the scotch yoke. In contrast to rack and pinion drives is not constant throughout the angle of rotation. Benefit: The high breakaway torque of the valve is overcome. The range of motion of the drive is limited to 90 for use with equipment such as ball cocks and butterfly valves.

Solution for Worksheet 3.8.1

The analog pressure sensor is a piezoresistive relative pressure sensor with integrated amplifier and built-in temperature compensation in an aluminum housing. The pressure to be measured acts on the piezoresistive element. The resulting signal change is emitted via an integrated amplifier as a voltage at the connector. The maximum output voltage is 10V DC. The output signal can be measured with a voltmeter. The temperature of the medium to be measured must be within a certain range, namely between 25C und 100C. The measuring range is between 0 and 100 mbar or 0 and 400 mbar, depending on the sensor type (see data sheets).

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.1

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

h max = h oB huB = 460mm 120mm = 340mm

kg m resulting in the unit s2 Nm P = 243.45 10 3 = 243.45 10 3W s

Explanation of the result No general solution for the capacity of the pump can be given as the value varies from system to system. Component tolerances in the pump, the setting of the motor regulator operating characteristic as well as differences in the piping system (curves, pumping head) can result in different delivery rates.

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.

What type of drive is it? How does it work? It is a semi-rotary drive with a scotch yoke. When the process valve is opened, the pistons move to the end caps. When the process valve is closed, the piston moves toward the shaft. The torque is generated by the scotch yoke. In contrast to rack and pinion drives is not constant throughout the angle of rotation. Benefit: The high breakaway torque of the valve is overcome. The range of motion of the drive is limited to 90 for use with equipment such as ball cocks and butterfly valves.

The analog pressure sensor is a piezoresistive relative pressure sensor with integrated amplifier and built-in temperature compensation in an aluminum housing. The pressure to be measured acts on the piezoresistive element. The resulting signal change is emitted via an integrated amplifier as a voltage at the connector. The maximum output voltage is 10V DC. The output signal can be measured with a voltmeter. The temperature of the medium to be measured must be within a certain range, namely between 25C und 100C. The measuring range is between 0 and 100 mbar or 0 and 400 mbar, depending on the sensor type (see data sheets).

39

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

The mean measured value can be taken as the operating point for the dynamic response of the control. The operating point should always be in the linear part of the sensor characteristic. The relationship between the input variable and the output variable that is the actual value and the manipulated variable is determined for the static response of the control when stationary. The manipulated variable should also be in the linear part of the actuator (pump).

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

PT1 elements smooth fast-changing signals (high frequencies) but let low frequencies pass. For this reason, they are also known as low-pass filters of the first order. They also generate a phase shift between the input signal and the output signal. The determination of time constants for higher-order controlled systems is described in detail in the workbook Control of temperature, flowrate and level), Chapter 2.3.3, Process analysis and modelling . The controlled system is in steady state after 5T. A controller for the controlled system should always be 8 10 times faster than the time constant to allow correct control.

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Festo Didactic MPS PA Compact Workstation

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.1

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

h max = h oB huB = 460mm 120mm = 340mm

Explanation of the result No general solution for the capacity of the pump can be given as the value varies from system to system. Component tolerances in the pump, the setting of the motor regulator operating characteristic as well as differences in the piping system (curves, pumping head) can result in different delivery rates.

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.

What type of drive is it? How does it work? It is a semi-rotary drive with a scotch yoke. When the process valve is opened, the pistons move to the end caps. When the process valve is closed, the piston moves toward the shaft. The torque is generated by the scotch yoke. In contrast to rack and pinion drives is not constant throughout the angle of rotation. Benefit: The high breakaway torque of the valve is overcome. The range of motion of the drive is limited to 90 for use with equipment such as ball cocks and butterfly valves.

The analog pressure sensor is a piezoresistive relative pressure sensor with integrated amplifier and built-in temperature compensation in an aluminum housing. The pressure to be measured acts on the piezoresistive element. The resulting signal change is emitted via an integrated amplifier as a voltage at the connector. The maximum output voltage is 10V DC. The output signal can be measured with a voltmeter. The temperature of the medium to be measured must be within a certain range, namely between 25C und 100C. The measuring range is between 0 and 100 mbar or 0 and 400 mbar, depending on the sensor type (see data sheets).

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

The mean measured value can be taken as the operating point for the dynamic response of the control. The operating point should always be in the linear part of the sensor characteristic. The relationship between the input variable and the output variable that is the actual value and the manipulated variable is determined for the static response of the control when stationary. The manipulated variable should also be in the linear part of the actuator (pump).

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

PT1 elements smooth fast-changing signals (high frequencies) but let low frequencies pass. For this reason, they are also known as low-pass filters of the first order. They also generate a phase shift between the input signal and the output signal. The determination of time constants for higher-order controlled systems is described in detail in the workbook Control of temperature, flowrate and level), Chapter 2.3.3, Process analysis and modelling . The controlled system is in steady state after 5T. A controller for the controlled system should always be 8 10 times faster than the time constant to allow correct control.

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

Explanation of the result No general solution for the capacity of the pump can be given as the value varies from system to system. Component tolerances in the pump, the setting of the motor regulator operating characteristic as well as differences in the piping system (curves, pumping head) can result in different delivery rates.

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.

The analog pressure sensor is a piezoresistive relative pressure sensor with integrated amplifier and built-in temperature compensation in an aluminum housing. The pressure to be measured acts on the piezoresistive element. The resulting signal change is emitted via an integrated amplifier as a voltage at the connector. The maximum output voltage is 10V DC. The output signal can be measured with a voltmeter. The temperature of the medium to be measured must be within a certain range, namely between 25C und 100C. The measuring range is between 0 and 100 mbar or 0 and 400 mbar, depending on the sensor type (see data sheets).

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Festo Didactic MPS PA Compact Workstation

47

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

The order of the controlled system can be determined from the transient response curve of the controlled system:

Transient responses of systems of different order

Once the order of the controlled system has been established, the time constant T of the controlled system can be determined graphically. For controlled systems of the 1st order, the time constant is determined as follows:

The number e is the final value of the series: Final value Time steps e = 2.71832 (bitte Dezimalpunkt statt komma verwenden) How is the number e, the In the language of mathematics, the time constant is also termed a subtangent. PT1 elements smooth fast-changing signals (high frequencies) but let low frequencies pass. For this reason, they are also known as low-pass filters of the first order. They also generate a phase shift between the input signal and the output signal. The determination of time constants for higher-order controlled systems is described in detail in the workbook Control of temperature, flowrate and level), Chapter 2.3.3, Process analysis and modelling . The controlled system is in steady state after 5T. A controller for the controlled system should always be 8 10 times faster than the time constant to allow correct control.

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

h max = h oB huB = 460mm 120mm = 340mm

Explanation of the result No general solution for the capacity of the pump can be given as the value varies from system to system. Component tolerances in the pump, the setting of the motor regulator operating characteristic as well as differences in the piping system (curves, pumping head) can result in different delivery rates.

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.

Solution for Worksheet 3.4.3

What type of drive is it? How does it work? It is a semi-rotary drive with a scotch yoke. When the process valve is opened, the pistons move to the end caps. When the process valve is closed, the piston moves toward the shaft. The torque is generated by the scotch yoke. In contrast to rack and pinion drives is not constant throughout the angle of rotation. Benefit: The high breakaway torque of the valve is overcome. The range of motion of the drive is limited to 90 for use with equipment such as ball cocks and butterfly valves.

Solution for Worksheet 3.8.1

The analog pressure sensor is a piezoresistive relative pressure sensor with integrated amplifier and built-in temperature compensation in an aluminum housing. The pressure to be measured acts on the piezoresistive element. The resulting signal change is emitted via an integrated amplifier as a voltage at the connector. The maximum output voltage is 10V DC. The output signal can be measured with a voltmeter. The temperature of the medium to be measured must be within a certain range, namely between 25C und 100C. The measuring range is between 0 and 100 mbar or 0 and 400 mbar, depending on the sensor type (see data sheets).

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.1

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

h max = h oB huB = 460mm 120mm = 340mm

kg m resulting in the unit s2 Nm P = 243.45 10 3 = 243.45 10 3W s

Explanation of the result No general solution for the capacity of the pump can be given as the value varies from system to system. Component tolerances in the pump, the setting of the motor regulator operating characteristic as well as differences in the piping system (curves, pumping head) can result in different delivery rates.

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.

What type of drive is it? How does it work? It is a semi-rotary drive with a scotch yoke. When the process valve is opened, the pistons move to the end caps. When the process valve is closed, the piston moves toward the shaft. The torque is generated by the scotch yoke. In contrast to rack and pinion drives is not constant throughout the angle of rotation. Benefit: The high breakaway torque of the valve is overcome. The range of motion of the drive is limited to 90 for use with equipment such as ball cocks and butterfly valves.

The analog pressure sensor is a piezoresistive relative pressure sensor with integrated amplifier and built-in temperature compensation in an aluminum housing. The pressure to be measured acts on the piezoresistive element. The resulting signal change is emitted via an integrated amplifier as a voltage at the connector. The maximum output voltage is 10V DC. The output signal can be measured with a voltmeter. The temperature of the medium to be measured must be within a certain range, namely between 25C und 100C. The measuring range is between 0 and 100 mbar or 0 and 400 mbar, depending on the sensor type (see data sheets).

39

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

The mean measured value can be taken as the operating point for the dynamic response of the control. The operating point should always be in the linear part of the sensor characteristic. The relationship between the input variable and the output variable that is the actual value and the manipulated variable is determined for the static response of the control when stationary. The manipulated variable should also be in the linear part of the actuator (pump).

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

PT1 elements smooth fast-changing signals (high frequencies) but let low frequencies pass. For this reason, they are also known as low-pass filters of the first order. They also generate a phase shift between the input signal and the output signal. The determination of time constants for higher-order controlled systems is described in detail in the workbook Control of temperature, flowrate and level), Chapter 2.3.3, Process analysis and modelling . The controlled system is in steady state after 5T. A controller for the controlled system should always be 8 10 times faster than the time constant to allow correct control.

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

Pt: Platinum, Ni: Nickel. 100 stands for the resistance in Ohms, when the measuring resistor has a temperature of 0C. There are also Pt1000 Sensors. Logically, these have a resistance of 1000 Ohm at a reference temperature of 0C. The temperature coefficient of the sensors is uniform at 3850 ppm/K. That means the internal resistance of the sensor changes by 0.385% for each degree change in temperature. Based on these values, the resistance of the Pt100 at 100C can be calculated as follows: Temperature change from

0C to 100C = 100 K 100 K 0.385% = 38.5% K R100 K = 38.5 R100C = R0C + R100 K = 100 + 38.5 = 138.5

Characteristics for container inflow and outflow

Findings from Measurement 1 The outlet valve V102/V112 is closed. As a result inflow via the inlet valve V101, the increase in the level (h) in the container is steady and linear over time. The greater the inflow, the more quickly the level in the container increases per unit time. If the quantity of water in container B101 were not limited, the amount of water would continue to increase until the container overflowed. There is not self-stabilization here. For this reason, the closed container B102 is an uncompensated controlled system. These uncompensated controlled systems are also termed integral systems (I systems), because the feed quantities add up. The level is thus the sum of all water that flows into the system. The time from empty to full is therefore also called the integration time Ti. Typical integral systems in machine-building are hydraulic cylinders and threaded spindles.

Festo Didactic MPS PA Compact Workstation

Solutions for Workbook MPS PA Compact Workstation

Findings from Measurement 2 The hydrostatic pressure in the water column ensures a reduction of flowrate at the outlet. The lower the water column, the lower the hydrostatic pressure and thus the lower the amount of water outflow. This results in a non-linear characteristic. Example: Electrical engineering: discharge of a capacitor Finding from Measurement 3 Controlled systems with compensation are controlled systems whose characteristic reaches equilibrium after a time. In level-controlled systems, the compensation takes the following physical form. When filling with a constant flowrate (inflow), the pressure of the water column at the bottom of the container is proportional to the level. The pressure at the bottom increases with level. This results in an increase in outflow until equilibrium with the inflow is reached. This results in a constant level that is, it no longer increases. This is called a steady-state end value. Outflow flowrate of water = inflow flowrate Controlled systems with equilibrium are also called PT controlled systems: P because the steady-state value is proportional to the input vale T because the steady-state value is only reached after time T If only container (controlled system) is present, the controlled system is called a PT1 = 1st order controlled system. A controlled system of the 0th order would be a pure P system, for example, a lever: the force is transmitted immediately without any delay.

Solution for Worksheet 4.1.3

A functioning control always comprises at least two elements: a controller and a controlled system. For control tasks it is essential to know which variable in the system is to be controlled. In a level-controlled system, the controlled variable is the level its current status (actual value) is interrogated by a sensor. How does the system respond with the outlet valve closed? The level (actual value) slowly approaches the setpoint. Once the setpoint is reached, the controller ensures that the speed of the pump is reduced as required to maintain the desired level. How does the system respond with the outlet valve open? Opening the outlet valve acts as a disturbance variable. Water is suddenly removed from the container. The level of the container is maintained, however. The pump runs faster (higher RPM) than with the outlet valve closed. Background The controller has the task of controlling the system in such a way that the controlled variable (that is, the level), remains as constant as possible. In the event of a disturbance (sudden removal of water), the controller increases the speed of the pump to pump more water into the container and thus compensate the loss. The controller is informed of a change in level by the signal from the sensor. This signal is termed the actual value.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.1

The pump is a normally primed centrifugal pump. This type of pump requires an absolutely tight suction pipe that should always be inclined up away from the pump in order to prevent the formation of air pockets. The pump and suction pipe must be filled with medium. The following points must be taken into account during operation: Before operation, the pump must be filled with medium. The pumps must not run dry but a dry-running period of less than 30 minutes will not damage the pump. The pump must always run in the prescribed direction. The pump is suitable for continuous operation. The medium to be pumped should not contain large particles of contaminant.

Solution for Worksheet 3.2.3

To determine the delivery rate of the pump, water is pumped from the lower container to the upper container until the level reads 150 mm on the scale. This allows the average flowrate per unit time (volumetric flow) to be determined. The pump capacity is to be calculated with the aid of the volumetric flow and the delivery head. Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Commission the system: fill and vent. Switch on power supply. Close the outlet of the upper container of the level-controlled system. Switch pump ON (with Process Lab, SPS or controller) and start timer. When level of 150 mm on the scale is reached, stop timer. Read off actual scale value (if not exactly 150 mm). Determine and document pumping time and delivery head. Determine average flowrate. Determine pump capacity.

The volumetric flow is the volume flowing through the cross-sectional area per unit time. The capacity of the pump can be calculated with the following formula:

m & P = V g h with g = 9.81 2 s


The system comprises a low and a high container and a pump between them. The maximum delivery head hmax is the distance between the inlet port of the pump and the maximum delivery head in the upper container hoB, less the minimum suction height in the lower container huB in relation to the surface of the profile plate. Distance pump inlet maximum delivery head in the upper container:

h oB = 350mm + 145mm 35mm =460mm


Minimum suction height:

h uB = 155mm 35mm = 120mm


The maximum delivery head hmax is:

h max = h oB huB = 460mm 120mm = 340mm

kg m resulting in the unit s2 Nm P = 243.45 10 3 = 243.45 10 3W s

Explanation of the result No general solution for the capacity of the pump can be given as the value varies from system to system. Component tolerances in the pump, the setting of the motor regulator operating characteristic as well as differences in the piping system (curves, pumping head) can result in different delivery rates.

Solution for Worksheet 3.3.1

What does the term proportional valve mean? The solenoid valves are closed by a spring at zero current. Any current through the solenoid coil results in a state of equilibrium between the spring and the magnetic force. The strength of the solenoid current or the magnetic force determines the stroke of the armature or degree to which the valve is opened. Ideally, dependency between current and opening of the valve should be linear. In other words, the valve opens and closes to a degree proportional to an analog voltage in the range 0 to 10 V.

What electrical signals do you need to use a proportional valve? The electronics of the proportional valve require a supply voltage of 24 VDC.

The valve is opened or closed with a control voltage of 0 to 10 V.
