1. Course Overview
National Instruments offers several tools for professors, researchers, and students to analyze and simulate dynamic systems and design and deploy control systems. These tools help students gain a better understanding of linear systems and control design concepts by facilitating a hands-on, experiential learning environment that is flexible and interactive in nature.
This 3 hour short course is designed as an instructor led and self study introduction to the control design process. This includes modeling, designing a controller, simulating the controller, and deploying a controller using LabVIEW, the Control Design Toolkit and the Simulation Module.
The course includes a presentation, manual, exercises, and solutions.
2. Course Outline
Review - Review of LabVIEW Basics
Modeling – Identify a mathematical representation of the plant
Control Design – Choose a control method and design a controller
Simulation – Employ a point-by-point approach to simulate the system timing with a solver
Tuning and Verification – Introduce real-world nonlinearities, tune, and verify the control algorithm
Deployment – Implement the finalized control system
