Programmable Logic Controller Based Metal Segregation in Steel Industry

Programmable Logic Controller Based Metal Segregation in Steel Industry

ABSTRACT: Mostly the waste management is one of the most important things in day to day life. This waste disposal mostly disturbs the earth environment because of lack of segregation of the particular waste. The waste disposal mainly consists of plastic items, metal waste, and waste from industries like E-waste, etc. Here the metal waste can be recycled in a proper manner if the metal disposal is segregated separately. This metal segregation can be done by detecting the metals in the waste that is coming in through any source. Here we have done a simple conveyor based system which separates the metal from non-metals. This will be useful in the waste segregation process. This system will separate the metal using the Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and a simple conveyor system will helps to segregate the metals.

Transformer monitoring and on load tap changer control using programmable logic

This paper presents a study of transformer monitoring and load tap-changer control. Earlier control schemes were the “paralleling balancer”, the “master/follower” and the “circulating current” schemes. schemes had their drawbacks. The scheme as presented in this paper is implemented using programmable logic, math functions and IEC 61850 communications over fiber-optic Ethernet. The presented scheme achieves ease and speed of installation, a more integrated system with less field using, minimal control cable runs and terminations and minimal overall installation time. With SCADA control accomplished over a DNP3 loop, need for electromechanical switches is eliminated. ree parallel 230/115KV autotransformers on the Santee Cooper

Development of a Programmable Logic Controller Training Unit for Engineering Technology Curriculum

Development of a Programmable Logic Controller Training Unit for Engineering Technology Curriculum

The Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) Program at Central Washington University (CWU) offers courses in Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) applications. The program previously relied on out-of-date, rack-mounted PLC equipment to support this class. While this provided the students with a procedural introduction to PLCs, it did not allow for a conceptual understanding or real world experience with the equipment. The EET Program recently developed an updated set of PLC units utilizing the Allen-Bradley CompactLogix® L30ER controller that allowed an open platform for the laboratory component of the class while fostering a conceptual understanding of the topic.

Programmable logic controller based variable speed drives for educational trainer

Programmable logic controller based variable speed drives for educational trainer

The need for a stand-alone device, one of the main downfalls of PID controllers, can easily be eliminated by implementing the control scheme from within a general purpose programmable logic controller (PLC). Utilizing a PLC as the primary cerebrum is a common practice in industrial plants. However, in order to accomplish PID control from within a PLC, one frequently needs a PID coprocessor that can be programmed in a language other than the standard PLC ladder logic. These coprocessors, which are often obtained from a company other than the PLC manufacturer, can add a significant amount to the overall PLC cost and therefore work against the goal of reducing the cost of the control system. In addition, the performance of the controller is still hindered by the limitations of PID control.

Design and Implement of a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) for Classical Control Laboratory

Design and Implement of a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) for Classical Control Laboratory

PLC’s were developed in the late 1960’s to eliminate the large cost involved in changing complicated relay based machine control systems. These systems were inflexible. Their major rewiring or complete replacement was nec- essary every time when the production requirements changed and control sequences had to be modified. It became very expensive when changes were frequent. The idea to replace relay systems with flexible microproces- sor based Programmable logic controllers PLC’s was a revolutionary step in the industrial control business [1].

Programmable Logic IP Cores in SoC Design: Opportunities and Challenges

Programmable Logic IP Cores in SoC Design: Opportunities and Challenges

The configuration information is typically stored in a set of SRAM bits (in some cases, anti-fuses are used rather than SRAM bits). The values in these SRAM bits determine what function each lookup table implements and how they are connected. The SRAM bits can be configured into one or more shift registers, and, once the chip is powered up, can be loaded by the user. Besides providing the ability to customize the circuitry after fabrication, the use of SRAM bits allows the designer/user to re-configure the core as many times as desired. For a more detailed description of programmable logic circuitry, see [8].
