One main characteristic of the ongoing energy transition is the continuous increase of renewable energy generation. Alongside the positive environmental effects accompanied by this technological change, still several challenges stay partly unsolved, especially in the context of the volatile power infeed of sun and wind power plants. By taking this in consideration, different "enablers" are needed to counteract these problems. Among the technical solution approaches, automation and the improvement of the measurement and control technologies will be crucial in order to cause a more "intelligent" structure for future energy networks. This includes technical power plant management and the progression of smart grids, as well as further enhancements in the field of building service engineering - just to name a few examples. In Addition to changes in the energy sector, the expansion of measurement and control technologies is going to play a decisive role in context of the so called industry 4.0 concept, which has been highly discussed in recent days. At the technical controlling level various system designs exist nowadays, each of them with different advantages and special range of application. Looking at the progression of automation in the manufacturing and process engineering sector, especially the development of the programmable logic controller (PLC) can be seen as one of the path breaking milestones. In view of its persistent topicality, the following master thesis describes the technical basics of the PLC-technology, as well as the practical implementation of a PLC, as part of an optimization of the measurement and control setup of a process plant at the Institute for Chemical and Energy Engineering.
