Here the lab engineers and students in the department have built a process plant for water heating for temperature, flow, level, pressure monitoring and control functions. There is another plant that was similarly built for industrial cooling functions. All the primary elements such as sensors, transmitters, final control elements (e.g. control valves and other auxiliary instrumentation devices such as solenoid valves, pressure gauges etc. are selected to be of an industrial grade so as to enhance students’ exposure and experience with real practical devices. Also there are USB- and Ethernet-based modules installed in process interconnection racks, connected to sensors on one end and to PCs on the other end of the Control Room through their Ethernet or USB ports for monitoring and control purposes.
Two Flow Computers and a portable Gas Analyzer system and FF Configuration & Monitoring software were added to this lab during the past year. cFP (Compact Fieldpoint) devices were recently added, a year ago, to this lab for use in student projects. In addition to that assorted components and devices like solenoid valves, electric actuator valves etc. are in the acquisition process.

  • Industrial-Type Control Room
This section is equipped with three Pentium Personal Computers, each with a data acquisition (DAQ) card. These three P-IV Personal Computers are networked and a laser printer. LabView package is used for process data monitoring and control functions. In addition to that DynSim a process control simulation software is available on these Personal Computers for studying the example models and also to build new simulations in the lab.
