## Hydraulic systems control involving CAN network

### Marek Kamiński

#### Abstract

The thesis controlling hydraulic systems by CAN network. To do the project a laboratory equipment was used. The laboratory equipment is placed in Faculty of Automotive and Construction machinery. A MC088-015 controller was used. It was CAN network compatible. The thesis consists of two parts. First part required adjusting the laboratory equipment to be controlled by mentioned controller. It required connecting the controller to already existing CAN network. Second part of the thesis required creating an software application for PLC controller using a particular utility software. In the introduction a general information about what is the thesis about was placed. Two main issues joined by the topic of the thesis were mentioned here: hydraulic systems and control involving CAN network. It also concentrates on showing the usefulness of these issues for a Faculty of Automotive and Construction Machinery graduate. In a chapter titled Main components of the control and measurement system a detailed description of used laboratory equipment is placed. A division into three main groups of components is used: actuating, measuring and controlling components. Hydraulic actuators and valves were included to the actuating components. Measuring components are position and pressure transducers. The type of transducers and structure of CAN frame were described here. Controlling components are the PLC controller and liquid crystal display. A description of used CAN network was also added here. It includes a scheme of the network. A chapter titled PLUS+1 GUIDE Utility Software includes a detailed description of tool available for creating an application. This chapter shows the reader, who is not familiar with PLUS+1 GUIDE, what is the general idea and conception of working with it. A description starts with showing the first steps of making a new application. Further, the most useful components, which every application consists of, are described. An example of solving typical problems commonly encountered during creating of application is also placed here. These problems are for example applying a PID controller of transmission/reception of a CAN data frame. An application chapter includes a detailed description of how does the control application made for this thesis work. Main assumptions for the application functionality were presented here. Two required work models were described. Next a detailed description of all logical blocks that the application consists of is placed. The description includes also figures showing how does the application look like when opened using the PLUS+1 GUIDE utility software. A part concerning the measurements is also placed here. The measurements referred to the response of the control system for a step input and a given sequence of set points. An interpretation of the results is added. The following chapter includes conclusion. The conclusions are divided into three groups: PLC controller, control issues and CAN network benefits. At the end of the thesis the references are listed.
