Objective:

The main purpose of the project is to maintain fluid in a desire level to any
control system. PLC is used in this project as an Automation tool to reduce
manual operation and get better accuracy.

Introduction:

In the past, humans were the main methods for controlling a system. More
recently electricity has been used for control and early electrical control was
based on relays. These relays allow power to be switched on and off without a
mechanical switch. It is common to use relays to make simple logical control
decisions. The development of low cost computer has brought the most recent
revolution. The Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is widely used in different
plants like power generation, boiler, level control, chemical plants, textiles mills,
paper plant, water treatment plant and food processing plant. Most of the
present science and technology of the control system is based on
microcontroller and PLC. This project work is done to present methods for
designing controls software using Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC).

The advance of the PLC began in the 1970 and has become the most common
choice for manufacturing controls. PLC has been gaining popularity on the
factory floor and will probably remain predominant for some time to come. Most
of this is because of the advantages they offer.

The PLC is not only are capable of performing the same tasks as hard-wired
control, but are also capable of many more complex applications. In addition,
the PLC program and electronic communication lines replace much of the
interconnecting wires required by hard-wired control. Therefore, hard wiring,
though still required to connect field devices, is less intensive. This also makes
correcting errors and modifying the application easier. Some additional
advantages of PLC are as follows:

• Smaller physical size than hard-wire solutions.

• Easier and faster to make changes.

• PLC has integrated diagnostics and override functions.

• Diagnostics are centrally available.

• Applications can be immediately documented.

• Applications can be duplicated faster and less expensively.

• Cost effective for controlling complex systems.


• Flexible and can be reapplied to control other systems quickly.

• Computational abilities allow more sophisticated control.

• Trouble shooting aids make programming easier and reduce downtime.

• Reliable components make these likely to operate for years before failure.

Basic of Programmable Logic Controller

Fundamental of PLC

A Programmable Logic Controller is a mini computer used to control equipment


in an industrial facility. The kinds of equipment that PLC’s can control are as
varied as industrial facilities themselves. Conveyor systems, food processing
machinery, auto assembly lines…you name it and there’s probably a PLC out
there controlling it. In a traditional industrial control system, all control devices
are wired directly to each other according to how the system is supposed to
operate. In a PLC system, however, the PLC replaces the wiring between the
devices. Thus, instead of being wired directly to each other, all equipment is
wired to the PLC. Then, the control program inside the PLC provides the “wiring”
connection between the devices. The control program is the computer program
stored in the PLC’s memory that tells the PLC what’s supposed to be going on
in the system. The use of a PLC to provide the wiring connections between
system devices is called soft wiring. A programmable logic controller (PLC), also
referred to as a programmable controller, is the name given to a type of
computer commonly used in commercial and industrial control applications.
PLC differs from office computers in the types of tasks that they perform and
the hardware and software they require performing these tasks. While the
specific applications vary widely, all PLC monitor inputs and other variable
values, make decisions based on a stored program, and control outputs to
automate a process or machine.
Example- Lets say that a push button is supposed to control the operation of a
motor. In a traditional control system, the push button would be wired directly to
the motor. In a PLC system, however, both the push button and the motor would
be wired to the PLC instead. Then, the PLC’s control program would complete
the electrical circuit between the two, allowing the button to control the motor.

Difference between conventional and PLC control

Conventional control system– a conventional control system consists of


electromagnetic relay, timer, and switch etc. which can be used to control a
specify process operation. But if any changed is required in the process then
whole control system has to be changed and rewiring is needed.

Programmable logic controller– a programmable logic controller is the


replacement of conventional control system such as electromechanical relays,
timer, counters etc. Basically a PLC operates by examining the input signals
connected from the process and carried out logic instructions on these input
signals and then it produces output to a drive process, equipment or machinery.
Standard interfaces uses in PLC, allow them to directly connect to the process
transducers or actuators without intermediate circuitry or relay.

Basic PLC Operation

A PLC works by continually scanning a program. We can think of this scan cycle
as consisting of 3 important steps. There are typically more than 3 but we can
focus on the important parts and not worry about the others. Typically the others
are checking the system and updating the current internal counter and timer
values.

Step 1
Check input status: First the PLC takes a look at each input to determine if it is
on or off other words, is the sensor connected to the first input on? How about
the 2nd input? About the third. It records this data into its memory to be used
during the next step.

Step 2

Execute program: Next the PLC executes program one instruction at a time.
May be program said that if the first input was on then it should turn on the first
output. Since it all knows which inputs are On & Off from the previous step will
be able to decide whether the output should be turned on based on the state of
the first input. It will store the execution result or use later during the next step.

Step 3

Update output status: Finally the PLC updates the status of the outputs. It
updates the outputs based on which inputs were on during the first step and the
results of executing program during the second step. Based on step 2 it would
now turn on the first output because the first input was on and program said to
turn on the first output when this condition is true. After the third step the PLC
goes back to step 1 and repeats the steps continuously. One scan time is
defined as the time it takes to execute the 3 steps listed above.

Advantages and Features of PLC

 Easy to program
 The interfacing for inputs and outputs is inside the controller.
 Does not suffer from fatigue problem
 Can be checked without field device
 Can perform complex logic operation
 Can interface with computer
 Faster system response
 Monitoring facilities available
 High reliability
 Easy to maintenance

Functional description of PLC

PLC is actually an industrial micro controller system where hardware and software specifically
adapted to industrial environment. Special attention needs to be given to input and output.
Because in these blocks we find protection needed in isolating a CPU blocks from damaging
influences that industrial environment can bring to a CPU via input lines. Program unit is usually
a computer used for writing a program

The control program can be entered into the PLC by using a simple form of high
level language like ladder diagram, instruction code etc. the input device such
as switch, push button, sensor and output device such as motor, relays, valves,
lamps etc. are connected to PLC. The operator then enters a sequence of
instructions into the memory of the PLC. The controller then monitors the inputs
and outputs according to these programs and carries out the control rules for
which it has been programmed.

Power supply- electrical supply is used in bringing electrical energy to central


processing unit. Most PLC controllers work either at 24 VDC or 220 VAC. In
some PLC controllers are electrical supply as a separate module. Those are
usually bigger PLC controllers, while small and medium varies already contain
the supply module, user has to determine how much current to take from 0

Basics of Manual and Automatic Control

Manual control- when the operator to operate the process to a desired condition,
then it carries out the corrective action is said to be manual control. The operator
adjusts the output to operate the plant. During start-up, this mode is normally
used.

Automatic control

When the instruments carry out the corrective action, then it is automatic
control.

Advantage of Automatic control

 Increase production
 Improve quality
 Greater production uniformity
 Saving in raw materials
 Saving in manpower

Conventional control system & PLC

Conventional control- a conventional control system consists of electromagnetic


relay,

Use of PLC instead of conventional procedure

PLC not only are capable of performing the same tasks as hard-wired control,
but are also capable of many more complex applications. In addition, the PLC
program and electronic communication lines replace much of the
interconnecting wires required by hard-wired control. Therefore, hard wiring,
though still required to connect field devices, is less intensive. This also makes
correcting errors and modifying the application easier. Some of the additional
advantages of PLC are as follows:

• Smaller physical size than hard-wire solutions.


• Easier and faster to make changes.

• PLC has integrated diagnostics and override functions.

• Diagnostics are centrally available.

• Applications can be immediately documented.

• Applications can be duplicated faster and less expensively.

The soft wiring advantage provided by programmable controllers is


tremendous. In fact, it is one of the most important features of PLC’s. Soft wiring
makes changes in the control system easy and cheap. If you want a device in
a PLC system to behave differently or to control a different process element, all
you have to do is change the control program. In a traditional system, making
this type of change would involve physically changing the wiring between the
devices, a costly and time-consuming endeavour. Let’s say that two push
buttons, PB1 and PB2, are connected to a PLC. Two pilot lights, PL1 and PL2,
are also connected to the PLC. The way these devices are connected now
pressing push button PB1 turns on pilot light PL1 and pressing push button PB2
turns on pilot light PL2. Let’s say that you want to change this around so that
PB1 controls PL2 and PB2 controls PL1. In a traditional system, you would have
to rewire the circuit so that the wiring from the first push button goes to the
second pilot light and vice versa. However, because these devices are
connected to a PLC, making this change is as simple as making a small change
in the control program. In addition to the programming flexibility we just
mentioned, PLC’s offer other advantages over traditional control systems.
These advantages include:

• High reliability

• Small space requirements

• Computing capabilities

• Reduced costs

• Ability to withstand harsh environments

• Expandability

PLC components and operation

The basic elements of a PLC include input modules or points, a central


processing unit (CPU), output modules or points, and a programming device.
The type of input modules or points used by a PLC depends upon the types of
input devices used. Some input modules or points respond to digital inputs, also
called discrete inputs, which are either on or off. Other modules or inputs
respond to analog signals. These analog signals represent machine or process
conditions as a range of voltage or current values. The primary function of a
PLC’s input circuitry is to convert the signals provided by these various switches
and sensors into logic signals that can be used by the CPU.

The CPU evaluates the status of inputs, outputs, and other variables as it
executes a stored program. The CPU then sends signals to update the status
of outputs. Output modules convert control signals from the CPU into digital or
analog values that can be used to control various output devices. The
programming device is used to enter or change the PLC’s program or to monitor
or change stored values. Once entered, the program and associated variables
are stored in the CPU. In addition to these basic elements, a PLC system may
also incorporate an operator interface device to simplify monitoring of the
machine or process.

The Central Processing Unit

The central processing unit (CPU) is the part of a programmable controller that
retrieves, decodes, stores, and processes information. It also executes the
control program stored in the PLC’s memory. In essence, the CPU is the
“brains” of a programmable controller. It functions much the same way the CPU
of a regular computer does, except that it uses special instructions and coding
to perform its functions.

The CPU has three parts:

• The processor

• The memory system

• The power supply

The processor is the section of the CPU that codes, decodes, and computes
data. The memory system is the section of the CPU that stores both the control
program and data from the equipment connected to the PLC. The power
supply is the section that provides the PLC with the voltage and current it needs
to operate.

The control program

The control program is a software program in the PLC’s memory. It’s what puts
the control in a programmable controller. The user or the system designer is
usually the one who develops the control program. The control program is made
up of things called instructions. Instructions are, in essence, little computer
codes that make the inputs and outputs do what you want in order to get the
result you need. There are all different kinds of instructions and they can make
a PLC do just about anything (add and subtract data, time and count events,
compare information, etc.). All you have to do is program the instructions in the
proper order and make sure that they are telling the right devices what to do
and voila…you have a PLC-controlled system. And remember, changing the
system is a snap. If you want the system to act differently, just change the
instructions in the control program. Different PLC offer different kinds of
instructions. That’s part of what makes each type of PLC unique. However, all
PLC use two basic types of instructions:

• Contacts

• Coils

Contacts- Contacts are instructions that refer to the input conditions to the
control program that is, to the information supplied by the input field devices.
Each contact in the control program monitors a certain field device. The contact
waits for the input to do something in particular (e.g., turn on, turn off, etc.—this
all depends on what type of contact it is). Then, the contact tells the PLC’s
control program, “The input device just did what it’s supposed to do. You’d
better check to see if this is supposed to affect any of the output
devices.”Coils- Coils are instructions that refer to the outputs of the control
program that is, to what each particular output device is supposed to do in the
system. Like a contact, each coil also monitors a certain field device. However,
unlike a contact, which monitors the field device and then tells the PLC what to
do, a coil monitors the PLC control program and then tells the field device what
to do. It tells the output device, “Hey, the PLC just told me that the switch turned
on. That means that you’re supposed to turn on now. So let’s go!”

Example- Let’s talk again about that soaped-up switching circuit, in which a wall
switch and an overhead light are connected to a PLC. Let’s say that Turning on
the switch is supposed to turn on the light. In this situation, the PLC’s control
program would contain a contact that examines the input device the wall switch
for an on condition and a coil that references the light. When the switch turns
on, the contact will energize, meaning that it will tell the PLC that the condition
it’s been looking for has happened. The PLC will relay this information to the
coil instruction by energizing it. This will let the coil know that it needs to tell its
referenced output the light to turn on.

In PLC talk, this three-step process of monitoring the inputs, executing the PLC
control program, and changing the status of the outputs accordingly is called
the scan.

Process control system

Process control system

A process control system is made up of a group of electronic devices that


provide stability, accuracy and eliminate harmful transition statuses in
production processes. Operating systems can have different arrangements and
implementation; from energy supply units to machines. As technology quickly
progresses, many complex operational tasks have been solved by connecting
programmable logic controllers and a central computer. Beside connections
with devices (e.g., operating panels, motors, sensors, switches, valves, etc.)
possibilities for communication among instruments are so great that they allow
a high level of exploitation and process coordination. In addition, there is greater
flexibility in realizing a process control system. Each component of a process
control system plays an important role, regardless of its size. For example,
without a sensor, the PLC wouldn’t know what is going on during a process. In
an automated system, a PLC controller is usually the central part of a process
control system. With the execution of a program stored in program memory,
PLC continuously monitors status of the system through signals from input
devices. Based on the logic implemented in the program, PLC determines which
actions need to be executed with output instruments. To run more complex
processes it is possible to connect more PLC controllers to a central computer.
A system could look like the one pictured below:

Conventional control panel

At the outset of industrial revolution, especially during sixties and seventies,


relays were used to operate automated machines, and these were
interconnected using wires inside the control panel. In some cases a control
panel covered an entire wall. To discover an error in the system much time was
needed especially with more complex process control systems. On top of
everything, a lifetime of relay contacts was limited, so some relays had to be
replaced. If replacement was required, machine had to be stopped and
production too. Also, it could happen that there was not enough room for
necessary changes. control panel was used only for one particular process, and
it wasn’t easy to adapt to the requirements of a new system. As far as
maintenance, electricians had to be very skillful in finding errors. In short,
conventional control panels proved to be very inflexible. Typical example of
conventional control panel is

given in the following picture.

In this photo you can notice a large number of electrical wires, time relays,
timers and other elements of automation typical for that period. Pictured control
panel is not one of the more “complicated” ones, so you can imagine what
complex ones looked like. Most frequently mentioned disadvantages of a
classic control panel are:

– Too much work required in connecting wires


– Difficulty with changes or replacements
– Difficulty in finding errors; requiring skillful work force
– When a problem occurs, hold-up time is indefinite, usually long.

Control panel with a PLC controller

With invention of programmable controllers, much has changed in how a


process control system is designed. Many advantages appeared. Typical
example of control panel with a PLC controller is given in the following picture.

Advantages of control panel that is based on a PLC controller can be presented


in few basic points:

1. Compared to a conventional process control system, number of wires


needed for

connections is reduced by 80%

2. Consumption is greatly reduced because a PLC consumes less than a bunch


of relays

3. Diagnostic functions of a PLC controller allow for fast and easy error
detection.

4. Change in operating sequence or application of a PLC controller to a different


operating process can easily be accomplished by replacing a program through
a console or using a PC software (not requiring changes in wiring, unless
addition of
some input or output device is required).

5. Needs fewer spare parts

6. It is much cheaper compared to a conventional system, especially in cases


where a large number of I/O instruments are needed and when operational
functions are complex.

7. Reliability of a PLC is greater than that of an electro-mechanical relay or a


timer.

Systematic approach in designing an process control system

First, you need to select an instrument or a system that you wish to control.
Automated system can be a machine or a process and can also be called an
process control system. Function of an process control system is constantly
watched by input devices (sensors) that give signals to a PLC controller. In
response to this, PLC controller sends a signal to external output devices
(operative instruments) that actually control how system functions in an
assigned manner (for simplification it is recommended that you draw a block
diagram of operations’ flow).

Secondly, you need to specify all input and output instruments that will be
connected to a PLC controller. Input devices are various switches, sensors and
such. Output devices can be solenoids, electromagnetic valves, motors, relays,
magnetic starters as well as instruments for sound and light signalisation.
Following an identification of all input and output instruments, corresponding
designations are assigned to input and output lines of a PLC controller.
Allotment of these designations is in fact an allocation of inputs and outputs on
a PLC controller which correspond to inputs and outputs of a system being
designed.

Third, make a ladder diagram for a program by following the sequence of


operations that was determined in the first step.

Finally, program is entered into the PLC controller memory. When finished with
programming, check up is done for any existing errors in a program code (using
functions for diagnostics) and, if possible, an entire operation is simulated.
Before this system is started, you need to check once again whether all input
and output instruments are connected to correct inputs or outputs. By bringing
supply in, system starts working.

Competence

Program support
Programming only related examples make up the first group of examples. They
are given as separate small programs that can later be incorporated into larger
ones. Second group consists of examples, which can be applied to some real
problems.

Self-maintenance

Program allows input to remain at ON status even when the condition that
brought it to that status stops. Example in picture below illustrates how use of a
key connected to the input IR000.00 changes IR010.01 output status to ON. By
letting the key go, output IR010.01 is not reset. This is because IR010.01 output
keeps itself at status ON through OR circuit (having IR000.00), and it stays in
this status until key at input IR000.01 is pressed. Input IR000.01 is in I
connection with the output pin IR010.01 that cancels out a condition, and resets
an IR010.01 bit. Example of self-maintenance is quite frequent in specific
applications. If a user was connected to IR010.01 output, START and STOP
functions could be realized from two keys (without the use of switches).
Specifically, input IR000.00 would be a START key, and IR000.01 would be a
STOP key.

Making large time intervalsIf it’s necessary to make a bigger time interval of
999.9 seconds (9999×0.1s) two linked timers, or a timer and a counter can be
used as in this example. Counter is set to count to 2000, and timer is set to 5
seconds, which gives a time interval of 10.000 seconds or 2.77 hours. By
executing a condition at IR000.00 input, timer begins to count. When it reaches
the limit, it sets a flag TIM001 that interrupts the link and simultaneously resets
a timer. Once 5 seconds have run out, flag TIM001 changes its status to ON
and executes a condition at the counter input CNT002. When a counter
numbers 2000 such changes in timer flag status, TIM001 sets its flag CNT002
which in turn executes a condition for IR010.00 to change status to ON. Time
that has elapsed from the change of IR000.00 input status to ON and a change
of IR010.00 input status to ON come to 10.000 seconds.

Delays of ON and OFF status

Example shows how to make output (IR010.00) delay as opposed to? (In
relation to? unclear meaning) input (IR000.00). By executing a condition at
IR000.00 input, timer TIM000 begins counting a set value 10 in steps of 0.1
seconds each. After one second has elapsed, it set its flag TIM000 that is a
condition in changing output status IR010.00 to ON. Thus we accomplish a
delay of one second between ON status of IR000.00 input and ON status
IR010.00 input. By changing IR010.00 output status to ON, half of the condition
for activation of the second timer is executed. Second half of the timer is
executed when IR000.00 input changes status to OFF (normally closed
contact). Timer TIM001 sets its flag TIM001 after one second, and interrupts a
condition for keeping an output in ON status.
Counter over 9999

If you need to count over 9999 (maximum value for a counter), you can use two
connected timers. First counter counts up to certain value, and the other one
counts flag status changes of the first counter. Thus you get the possibility of
counting up to a value that is a result of set values of the first and second
counter. In an example at the bottom, first counter counts up to 1000, and
second up to 20 which allows you to count to 20000. By executing a condition
at IR000.00 input (line whose changes are followed is brought to it), first counter
decreases its value by one. This is repeated until counter arrives at zero when
it sets its flag CNT001 and simultaneously resets itself (is made ready for a new
cycle of counting from 1000 to 0). Each setting of CNT001 influences the other
counter which sets its flag after twenty settings of the first counter’s flag. By
setting CNT002 flag of the second counter, a condition is executed for an
IR010.00 output to be activated and to stay in that status through self-
maintenance.

Same effect can be achieved with a modified program below. First change is
that there is a “switch” for the whole program, and this is IR000.00 input
(program can accomplish its function only while this switch is active). Second
change is that the line whose status is followed is brought to IR000.01 input.
The rest is the same as in the previous version of the program. Counter CNT002
counts status changes of the CNT001 counter flag. When it numbers them, it
changes the status of its flag CNT002 that executes the condition for status
change of IR010.00 output. This changes IR010.00 output status after 20000
changes of input IR000.01.

Alternate ON-OFF output

Example makes a certain number of impulses of desired duration at PLC


controller IR010.00 output. Number of impulses is given in instruction of the
counter (here it is a constant #0010 or ten impulses) impulse duration in two-
timer instructions. First timer defines duration of ON status, and second one
duration of OFF status of IR010.00 output bit. In the example these two
durations are the same, but through assigning them different parameters they
can differ so that duration of ON status can be different from duration of OFF
status.Program starts executing a condition at IR000.00 bit. Since a normally
closed contact which refers to counter flag (that isn’t set ) is linked with this
IR000.00 bit in “I” circuit, this status of IR200.00 bit will change to ON. Bit
IR200.00 keeps its status through self-maintenance until counter flag is not set
and a condition interrupted. When an IR200.00 bit is set, timers TIM001 and
TIM002 start counting a set interval number at 0.1 s ( in the example, this
number is 10 for the first timer, or 20 for the second timer, and this sets the
period of one or two seconds). With both timers, a normally closed contact
which refers to TIM002 timer flag is connected with IR200.00 bit. When this flag
is set which happens every two seconds, both timers are reset. Timer TIM002
resets timer TIM001 and itself, and this starts a new cycle. At the start of a
program, IR010.00 output bit changes status to ON and stays in this status until
TIM001 flag changes status to ON (after one second). By changing TIM001 flag
status to ON, condition is broken (because it is represented as normally closed
contact) and IR010.00 bit changes status to OFF. IR010.00 output status
changes to ON again when time has run out on TIM002 timer. This resets
TIM001 timer and its flag, which in turn executes a condition for status change
of the IR010.00 output. Cycle is thus repeated until a counter numbers 10
changes of TIM001 flag status. With the change of status of CNT000 counter
flag, a condition for an assisting bit IR200.00 is broken, and program stops
working.

The great advantage of PLC based fuel & water level control system is with
maximum accuracy. Also the system has higher reliability, small space
requirements reduced cost and able to work as friendly with environment.

Further Recommendation

In this project we used Programmable Logic Controller as Automation Tool. It’s


a combination of solid state device to perform specific task using Ladder
logic. It may easily run a control system with more system accuracy, smoothly
and efficiently. In other hand- we can control this system by Microcontroller
instead of Programmable Logic Controller. As an automation tool
Microcontroller is efficient enough to control this project. It will make this project
perfect and success in many ways-

Firstly, we can make this project in less cost and due to its high expenses it is
not a good idea in mass production. Secondly, it required less space then
Programmable Logic Controller. Thirdly, PLC cannot handle complex situation.
That’s why, now a days- Microcontroller is used thoroughly in process control,
control of machinery, Factory assembly line, Upgrade automotive Vehicle
also…

In future we hope that, the Fluid Level Control will be designed by


Microcontroller Instead of Programmable Logic Controller.
