Functie omschrijving


Performing system identifications on actuators using Beckhoff control components is not always possible or it is lacking functionality. Therefore, a system identification tool that works with the Beckhoff (PLC) eco-system will improve our ability to tune motors and other actuators.


The goal of this assignment is to build a (GUI) tool in Python to perform sytem identification (FRF’s & step responses) using Beckhoff components from which a test report can be generated.

This project will include PLC programminng, understanding communication protocols, Python scripting, and system and control.


A WO/HBO student (internship or graduation assignment) with the following expertice:

  • Experience with PLC programming
  • Experience with Python scripting
  • Affinity with system & control
