Advanced Instrumentation And Control Trainer
The Advanced Instrumentation and Control Trainer was developed so as to enable students to practice the notions of instrumentation, regulation, control and automation of continuous process. The trainer also allows the students to become familiar with real process in permitting them to connect the different components of the system, initiate different calibrations and set up tuning parameters. The strategies can be modified and the system also permits cascade control, feed-forward control and other control strategies. The unit is mounted, inspected and delivered to be used immediately. The different educational aspects are taken into consideration during the conception, as well as assuring that the final assembly will be easy to move, sturdy, attractive, safe, flexible, and versatile.
Design of Advanced Instrumentation And Control Trainer
The conception itself was designed in close collaboration with technical college professors and technicians from industries. The choice of processes, loops and their static and dynamic characteristics (time constants, time delays, process gains) were all made carefully.
Process of Advanced Instrumentation And Control Trainer
The system is composed of 3 loops:
Process Concept of Advanced Instrumentation And Control Trainer
The system consists of pumping water into a reservoir, and recycling this water. Using a very quiet pump, water from a reserve is pumped into a reservoir (30 inches) by way of a control valve, which control the level if the system is in a single loop. The output of this reservoir discharges into a reserve and returns to the pump.
