Job area Apprentice (JFG) Location Veghel, Netherlands. Contract type Full time

Assignment type: Internship

Start date: February 2022

Assignment duration: +/- 6 months

Assignment description

With the integration of energy efficient IE4 motors in the Airports conveyors of Vanderlande, new opportunities arise for the development of new motor control strategies. 

Whether it is a DC of Albert Heijn, or the baggage basement of Schiphol, all Vanderlande systems are built to transport the right packet to the right sort location with extreme accuracy. This means that we need a solid administration which packet is at what location.

In the past, the systems of Vanderlande used a rather large observer model for tracking of items on conveyor belts. As this was practically an open loop control system, and the control loop had a strong discrete-time character, the robustness of the system was low.

The introduction of this new drive technology enables the use of encoders as a means of feedback. The assignment is about designing controls using this feedback, in a practical industrial environment. Will this technique allow us to improve our tracking abilities? Can you make it work in a real industrial environment?

Tasks/responsibilities

The assignment consists of the following: 

  • Real world system exploration 
  • Plant modelling 
  • Controller design. 
  • Theoretical validation & simulation 
  • Specifying controls 
  • Validation of designed controller on actual test setup. 
  • A written report on the previously mentioned 
  • A final presentation 

Note that for validating the controller, one of our colleagues can assist in writing the PLC controls. 

Your profile

  • Knowledge of system modelling & controller design 
  • Modelling & simulation skills 
  • Affinity with industrial controls systems 
  • Hands-on mentality 
  • Affinity with programming PLCs is a pré, but not required 

Department description

You will be part of the Airports Conveying team, which is responsible for developing and maintaining several equipment modules in the portfolio of Vanderlande. A group of roughly 60 experts is working on developing new functionality to be deployed at tomorrow’s airports.

As an intern, you will be guided by experts on the field of Motor Drive technology, Controls specialists and a System Architect, to make sure we can provide you with the right knowledge and context.
