ProcessMotion software is an outstanding tool for demonstrating and understanding level, flow and temperature process control, with an emphasis on the process itself.
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.

 

Level and Flow
– Lets user define control variables: set-point, high and low limits, Kp, Ki, Kd
– Lets user define control type: open loop, closed loop, P, PI or PID.
– Lets user define process variables (for simulation): number of open valves, tank volume. Software then determines and displays the settings for a particular component, such as the pump.
– Provides real-time, dynamic simulation and measurement charting: Three windows can simultaneously display three different 3D views of the process system. Cut-away view shows structure and operation of internal components; Control loop block diagram displays variables and their changing values; Dynamic charts display real-time measurements of water level and pump power.
– Allows graphs and process data to be recorded, saved to file, replayed and exported to spreadsheet software for analysis
– Provides fully functional offline simulation of control processes. Applications created in simulation can be tested and implemented on the actual panel. Simulation software gives more students access to learning tools.
– Users can create their own process control applications in any standard programming language. OCX supplied with system provides application programs interface (API) for functions such as reading level and flow data and setting values for the pump.
