The training laboratory system is used to study PID controller and the variants of its using in industry during automated control systems construction. The investigated object is heating object (oven emulator).
The front panel includes: the model of technological unit, PLC, remote control.
The oven emulator with installed temperature sensors is the thermal object. The temperature of thermal object is controlled by two temperature sensors: the first is connected to PID-controller, the second is connected to the the fan rotational speed controller. The fan is used both to produce disturbance action, and to produce setting action. There is an opportunity of autonomous operation of speed rotational controller for studying the fan operating principle.
The investigation of control law is used in the case of autonomous operation of PID-controller. The controlling of the investigated object is performed both in automatic, and in manual modes. The status indicators of thermal object are displayed on the PLC, which controls the operation of temperature controller.
The training system is supplied with a set of technical and methodical documentation for teaching staff.
