Flow control serves to demonstrate and teach the measurements and control of liquid flow processes. Flow Process Control course gives students virtual experience raising and lowering water flow rates to preset levels using manual control and auto-tuning methods. Students create variable demand and supply disturbances by opening an outlet valve along the supply pipe.
