Virtual Benchtop Laboratory Series

7. Fluid Level Dynamics and Control Package

The control of tanks and pumps is a very common problem met in industry.  Tanks are frequently used in industry to store fluids and to act as a buffer between different operations.  This virtual laboratory has been designed to closely emulate a physical laboratory though without the slow response common with the physical apparatus.  This laboratory package will familiarize you with determining models for dynamic systems and with the design of simple feedback control systems.

  1. Fluid Level Dynamics and Control - Single Tank Control
  2. Fluid Level Dynamics and Control - Coupled Tanks Control
