Water Temperature Control Using a Heat Exchanger

This project will consist of modeling, designing and testing various temperature and level control laws for IALab'sprocess tank experimental rig. The controllers will be designed using Matlab and implemented in UNAC running on an Allen-Bradley OC1747 open controller.

 

Control Design Software

This project aims at developing software tools in Matlab to facilitate controller design. The design tools will include

 

A control background is required for this project.
