Project Summary Project Information

For an updated project description, click on the following link for the Project Readiness Package.

Process control is critical to virtually every application Engineers will come into contact with. There are two basic aspects to learning/teaching Process Control:

-The theoretical background behind the differential equations that drive a control loop.

-The practical application of control theory in a lab environment that demonstrates the interactions between the process and the control.

The control equations are fundamental to all applications. However, the interactions are significantly impacted by the design and type of process being controlled. These interactions are best learned by actual experience in a process lab.

This project will investigate, design, fabricate and evaluate three different processes that will be used to practically demonstrate process control (PID) in a lab environment. This equipment will be used in conjunction with class room teaching. This project will focus on process control via a flow tube and variable speed pump.
