Objectives
THE COURSE PROVIDES THE ESSENTIAL SKILLS AIMED AT THE ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF CIRCUITS AND ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT FOR THE FIELD OF INDUSTRIAL INFORMATICS COMPLETING THE KNOW HOW ACQUIRED IN THE BASIC COURSE OF ELECTRIC CIRCUIT ANALYSIS. IN PARTICULAR, IT PROVIDES THE KEY ELEMENTS FOR THE EFFICIENT ENERGY MANAGEMENT OF THE DEVICES (SENSORS, ACTUATORS, ...) INCLUDED IN SIMPLE AUTOMATIC CONTROL SYSTEMS BASED ON MICROCONTROLLERS (E.G. ARDUINO, RASPBERRY, ...), SUCH AS EMBEDDED SYSTEMS.
THE TOPICS ARE INTRODUCED THROUGH AN APPROACH BASED ON REAL APPLICATIONS.

KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
- MAIN STRUCTURES AND DEVICES EMPLOYED IN AUTOMATED PROCESSES.
- OPERATING PRINCIPLES AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MOST COMMON SENSORS FOR THE ACQUISITION OF PHYSICAL QUANTITIES
- PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF ACTUATORS USED IN THE INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION SYSTEMS (STEPPER AND BRUSHLESS DC MOTORS, LINEAR ACTUATORS).
- CIRCUITS CONTAINING OPERATIONAL AMPLIFIERS (SUMMERS, VOLTAGE FOLLOWERS, INTEGRATORS, DERIVATING CIRCUITS, ...).
- ANALOG / DIGITAL AND DIGITAL / ANALOG CONVERSION PRINCIPLES AND STRUCTURES

APPLIED KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
ABILITY TO:
- CHOOSE THE SENSING AND ACTUATING DEVICES SUITABLE FOR SPECIFIC WORKING CONDITIONS.
- ANALYZE STATIC AND DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE OF ELECTROMECHANICAL ACTUATORS.
- ANALYZE CIRCUITS CONTAINING OPERATIONAL AMPLIFIERS
- FIND THE INPUT-OUTPUT CHARACTERISTIC IN TIME AND FREQUENCY DOMAIN FOR SENSORS OR CIRCUITS BASED ON OPERATIONAL AMPLIFIERS.
- DESIGN, REALIZE AND TEST SIMPLE CONTROL SYSTEMS BASED ON MICROCONTROLLERS (ARDUINO; RASPBERRY, ...)
- WRITE A TEST REPORT.
Prerequisites
KNOWLEDGE OF THE TOPICS DEALT WITH IN THE COURSES OF ELECTROTECHNIQUES AND FOUNDATION OF AUTOMATIC CONTROL.

DURING THE COURSE, LABORATORY TESTS ARE CARRIED OUT IN SMALL GROUPS TO DEVELOP SPECIFIC APPLICATION SKILLS AND GENERAL CAPACITIES OF THE STUDENTS(TEAM WORKING, PRESENTATION ABILITY, ...).
AT THE END OF THE COURSE, THE DEVELOPMENT (IN SMALL TEAMS) OF A PROJECT CONCERNING A SIMPLE MICROPROCESSOR-BASED SYSTEM BASED ON TYPICAL PLATFORMS(E.G. ARDUINO, RASPBERRY, ...) IS REQUIRED TO DEVELOP DESIGN ABILITY.
BOTH FOR THE LABORATORY TESTS AND THE FINAL PROJECT STUDENTS MUST PRODUCE A TECHNICAL REPORT ILLUSTRATING THE PERFORMED ACTIVITIES AND THE ACHIEVED RESULTS.
Teaching Methods
THE COURSE CONSISTS OF LECTURES AND BOTH CLASSROOM AND LABORATORY EXERCISES. IN CLASS EXERCISES A PROBLEM CONCERNING THE TECHNIQUES PRESENTED IN THE LECTURES WILL BE ASSIGNED TO THE STUDENTS. THE SOLUTION OF THE PROBLEM, WHICH IS CARRIED OUT UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF THE TEACHER, SEEKS TO DEVELOP AND STRENGTHEN THE STUDENTS CAPACITY OF IDENTIFYING THE MOST APPROPRIATE TECHNIQUES. METHODS TO PRODUCE A CLEAR AND ACCURATE PRESENTATION OF THE ACHIEVED RESULTS ARE ALSO PROPOSED.

AT THE END OF THE COURSE, THE DEVELOPMENT (IN SMALL TEAMS) OF A PROJECT CONCERNING A SIMPLE MICROPROCESSOR-BASED SYSTEM BASED ON TYTPICAL PLATFORMS(E.G. ARDUINO, RASPBERRY, ...) IS REQUIRED TO DEVELOP DESIGN ABILITY.
BOTH FOR THE LABORATORY TESTS AND THE FINAL PROJECT STUDENTS MUST PRODUCE A TECHNICAL REPORT ILLUSTRATING THE PERFORMED ACTIVITIES AND THE ACHIEVED RESULTS.

IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE TO THE FINAL ASSESSMENT AND TO GAIN THE CREDITS CORRESPONDING TO THE COURSE, THE STUDENT MUST HAVE ATTENDED AT LEAST 70% OF THE HOURS OF ASSISTED TEACHING ACTIVITIES.
Verification of learning
THE ASSESSMENT OF COURSE OUTCOMES IS ACHIEVED BY AN ORAL TEST AIMED AT VERIFYING THE LEVEL OF THEORETICAL AND OPERATIONAL KNOWLEDGE AND PRESENTATION SKILLS OF THE STUDENT.

THE ASSESSMENT IS PERFORMED BY AN ORAL TEST AIMED AT EVALUATING THE ACQUIRED LEVEL OF THE LEARNING RESULTS.
IN PARTICULAR, THE TEST IS BASED ON:
- A DISCUSSION OF THE TEST REPORTS CONCERNING THE LABORATORY TESTS CARRIED OUT DURING THE COURSE IN ORDER TO EVALUATE THE LEVELS OF COMPETENCES AMONG THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MAIN COMPONENTS OF A MICROCONTROLLER SYSTEM (SENSORS, ACTUATORS, SIGNAL TREATMENT CIRCUITS).
- A DISCUSSION ON THE CONTENT OF THE FINAL PROJECT TO INVESTIGATE THE LEVELS OF COMPETENCES RELATING TO THE CAPACITY TO IMPLEMENT CONTROL SYSTEMS AND ANALYZE THEIR PERFORMANCES.
DISCUSSION CONCERNS THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE SUBJECTS, THE CAPACITIES TO USE KNOWLEDGE IN APPLICATIVE CASES AND THE PRESENTATION ABILIT OF THE STUDENT.
THE GRADE (MARK), GIVEN IN A SCALE OUT OF THIRTY (MIN 18/30, MAX 30/30 WITH LAUDE), DEPENDS ON THE LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE CONCERNING THE LEARNING OUTCOMES, THE ABILITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE IN PRACTICAL EXAMPLES AND ON THE QUALITY OF PRESENTATION.
THE EXAMINER MAY DECIDE WHETHER PARTICULAR STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES CAN COMPENSATE EACH OTHER.
THE MINIMUM GRADE (18/30) IS ATTRIBUTED WHEN THE STUDENT SHOWS UNCERTAINTIES IN THE APPLICATION OF CRITERIA FOR DIMENSIONING THE DEVICES OF THE SYSTEM, HAS LIMITED KNOWLEDGE OF THE MAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SENSORS AND ACTUATORS AND SCARCE EXPOSITORY CAPACITY.
THE MAXIMUM LEVEL (30/30) IS ATTRIBUTED WHEN THE STUDENT DEMONSTRATES A COMPLETE AND THOROUGH KNOWLEDGE OF THE CRITERIA AND METHODS FOR DIMENSIONING THE COMPONENTS OF THE SYSTEM AND IS ABLE TO SOLVE THE PROPOSED PROBLEMS BY IDENTIFYING THE MOST APPROPRIATE DEVICES, SHOWS A REMARKABLE ABILITY TO CONNECT AND EXPOSE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF COMPONENTS AND SYSTEMS.
THE LAUDE IS ATTRIBUTED WHEN THE CANDIDATE SHOWS A SIGNIFICANT MASTERY OF THE THEORETICAL AND OPERATIONAL CONTENTS AND SHOWS THE ABILITY TO PRESENT THE TOPICS WITH REMARKABLE PROPERTIES OF LANGUAGE AND AUTONOMOUS PROCESSING CAPACITY EVEN IN CONTEXTS DIFFERENT FROM THOSE PROPOSED BY THE TEACHER.
