Process Control System

Chemical Engineering Lab process control

The process control system shows the dynamics of level control. The system is connected to a computer in the Process Control Lab. Control characteristics such as the proportional, integral and derivative values (PID) are programed into the system and control dynamics are recorded for calculations.  There is also a completely pneumatic flow control system that is used by the students to demonstrate the proportional and integral (PI) value impact on flow control.
