FLOW

The Flow system consists of a water tank, variable speed pump, a turbine type flow sensor, an electrically operated proportional valve and a variable area flow meter (rotameter). This allows students to adjust the flow rate via the pump speed and the valve opening to develop PID based control system.

TEMPERATURE

The temperature process control system includes a heated plate within a duct. Two thermocouples connect to the controller and an external meter to allow students to check and calibrate the controller input. A fan at one end of the duct blows the ambient air over the block, to change the control conditions and provide a disturbance to the system. The system allows students to adjust the heater power and the air flow rate to develop a PID based control system then adjust these parameters to achieve the required time/temperature change profile for the system in response to step changes in the system requirements.

PRESSURE

The Pressure system consists of a variable speed reciprocating air pump (compressor), the speed of which can be adjusted by students, a pressure vessel and an outflow system. The outflow system allows the air to escape via either a manually operated needle valve - providing an ongoing outflow, or via a solenoid valve and second needle valve - providing a step change in outflow. The vessel pressure is measured by a Bourdon type mechanical gauge along with a pressure sensor. The Bourdon gauge provides a visual indication of the pressure in the vessel and a means for students to check and calibrate the controller input from the pressure sensor.

LEVEL

The Level system consists of a reservoir water tank, a variable speed pump, a pressure-based level sensor, and clear process vessel with a scale. A proportional valve provides the process vessel drain. An overflow pipe in the process vessel prevents it from being overfilled and the system allows students to adjust the pump speed and valve opening.
