AC 800PEC Matlab/Simulink
Course goal The AC 800PEC Control Platform is ABBs high performance process control system and belongs to the ControlIT product line. The AC 800PEC is the optimum solution for combining: the high-speed control requirements of power electronics applications low-speed process control tasks usually carried out by separate PLC units. The course goal is to teach the student how to program AC 800PEC by means of the Matlab/Simulink tool. Learning objectives The course shows how to build system simulations and to use the control part of the simulation directly as real-time code. Participants Application, Test, Service and Commissioning Engineers Prerequisites Basic knowledge of electronics Personal computer knowledge Basic Matlab / Simulink knowledge Topics Systematic procedure for building up a system simulation, later use of the control part for real-time code Show parallels between real-time code and simulation Guidelines (signal- and variable names, program structures) Interfaces of the control application: To the FPGA PSE-Interface Task Handling / Timing / Dead-times / Delays State Machine Program download, use of installer External mode Methods Lectures, Presentations, Demonstrations Exercises using table model
