  ADVANCED AUTOMATION

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2018-19

Esta asignatura aborda la aplicación de los sistemas de automatización modernos a los procesos industriales para lograr que estos se lleven a cabo eficazmente y con total autonomía, o, al menos, con alto grado de independencia, del factor humano. Los equipos usados como celebros de estos sistemas son típicamente los autómatas programables o PLCs (Programable Logic Controllers), así como  los denominados PCs industriales o empotrados.

Estos equipos interactúan con un proceso industrial a través de sensores y accionamientos de diferentes tipos. Además, en las plantas industriales donde se requiere supervisar y monitorizar diferentes procesos gobernados por autómatas, se utilizan otros equipos de más alto nivel con las aplicaciones de interfaz con los técnicos y operadores, y todos los sistemas se comunican con redes de datos industriales, conformando un sistema SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition). Con este tipo de sistemas, no solo se logra automatizar los procesos, sino también gestionar la cadena de producción, alcanzando una supervisión completa de una planta industrial, la cual facilita la gestión de calidad conforme a los estándares ISO.

En Automatización Avanzada se tratan todos estos aspectos de una forma global, con el fin de enseñar cómo afrontar el desarrollo de un proyecto completo de automatización industrial. Esta asignatura sirve además como punto de partida para aspectos que son abordados con más profundidad en posteriores asignaturas optativas del máster también, como pueden ser las redes industriales, los interfaces hombre-máquina o los sistemas de producción automáticos.
