Prerequisites
Basic electrical drives, power electronics, power systems and control.
Learning outcomes
The course focuses on a number of topics related to industrial automation and electrical drives. Specific components and actuators not studied before are focused here, like special machines and sensors for motion control and robotics. Also communication techniques and protocols, more and more relevant for the more recent automation technology, are introduced and applied both to industrial and civil application (Home automation or Domotics).
Course contents
The course gives an overview on various issues in the field of automation both for industrial and civil applications (e.g. robotics & factory automation, home automation) and is mainly centered on communication protocols and electrical drives. The main topics comprise:

1.Loads with variable inertia; two-link manipulator: lagrangian formulation and terms of the torque; schemes and algorithms for the reconstruction of the speed in electrical drives; 2. Double-fed induction motor;; drives with synchronous reluctance and switched reluctance motors.
3. Automation Systems Architectures; devices for the automation, industrial PLC & PC, systems for Numeric Control; Levels of Automation; ISO-OSI model; Software for industrial automation; 4. Communication protocols (speed, accuracy, determinism) and standards; automation for continuous and discrete industrial processes; 5.Domotics and buiding automation: standards and case studies.
6. Electric and Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV): basic concepts, classification of EHVs, series/paralle/series-parallel traction; modes of operation; Electrical Drives for EHVs; control.
Teaching methods
The course is made up of module A (points 1, 2, & 6 of the program) by prof. Bassi, and module B (points 3, 4 & 5) by prof. Benzi. The lectures of the two modules are mutually independent and are given in parallel.

Lectures (hours/year in lecture theatre): 36
