Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.

Pre-requisites and Co-requisites

• Automation Concepts 1 and
• Automation Concepts 2

Course Description

This learning unit provides the concepts of PLC circuit design for various industrial control applications, apply advanced PLC programming techniques to automation applications and interfacing between PLC and Hydraulic sequential machinery. Students will develop practical skills in advance programming, testing and problem solving related to working with PLC in automation areas.

This learning unit is one of a group of units designed to collectively meet underpinning skill & applied knowledge essential for developing the following Core Competency –

UTE NES 504 bA – Diagnose faults in advanced systems and associated apparatus- Electrical

which is contained in the National Electrotechnology Training Package UTE99

National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

UTENES504BA Diagnose & rectify faults in advanced systems & apparatus


o 504.1 Plan and prepare for diagnosis of faults in advanced systems and associated apparatus.
o 504.2 Diagnose faults in advanced systems and associated apparatus
o 504.3 Rectify faults in advanced systems and associated apparatus.
o 504.4 Provide status report(s)

Performance Criteria:

When performing the simulations, students must demonstrate ability to:

o Organise and manage the tasks within the simulations
o Cope with any contingencies that arise during the simulations and solve inherent problems
o Perform tasks autonomously and/or as a member of a team as task proscribes
o Perform task and manage work environment/equipment according to safe working practice and OH&S requirements.
o Meet assessment criteria, conditions and technical requirement relevant to the competency standard detail above.

• Practical exercises

These will be assessed progressively according to individual task criteria. All laboratory exercises must be
o Undertaken according to safe working practice as specified by the Centre.
o Perform according to specified laboratory standards and practice including calibration, measurement and accurate reading. This must include electrical measurement taken with safe working practice, meters properly calibrated, meter settings positioned for an accurate reading and accurate readings taken for all measurements.

• Progressive and Validation Tests

Learning Outcomes

Details of Learning Activities

Students will participate face to face in
• classroom tutorial activities to consolidate the theory of Industrial control devices and its applications, advanced PLC program design for industrial control that linked to various hydraulic machinery.

• practical activities to develop skill in circuit simulation, programming & debugging, construction and fault diagnosis of PLC control circuits to interface with hydraulic machinery.

• Work performance simulation projects involving circuit design and construction, PLC programming, establish testing procedure to verify the specification, diagnose and debug faults, and completion of the commission. Specifications will be provided with work simulation (team or individual basis) or may be negotiated to suit a workplace based application
Projects may be undertaken as part of a team or individual basis.

It is expected that students would require approximately 30% of course hours to be allocated for independent study to do project research, design, construction, testing and problem solving activities.
