This data-driven animation software is designed to provide the student a realistic simulation of real-world processes. The software is used to define the process set-point and the type of control – open or closed loop and PID parameters.
Students learn how water can be heated or cooled and raised or lowered to a preset level through manual and automatic control. Students also learn how flow rate affects water level and temperature. Students can create variable demand and supply disturbances by manipulating the panel’s loading pump, and perform and verify controller tuning.
