Introduction & Process Control

Back to Products

Dynamic process simulation promotes the understanding of control loops in the most memorable way.

Designed to inspire an interest in process for STEM and introductory course levels, the 1000's series range of  basic models relates to common household scenarios in an industrial way.

This introductory range of models puts the fun back into learning. And at the same time they introduce students to DCS computer control without them realising that this is what they are using. Geared to be available at an affordable price, even in classroom quantities.

The effect of changes to control loop settings is clearly demonstrated visually dynamically. The way in which optimum Proportional, Integral and Derivative (PID) loop values may be calculated and set is clearly shown.

TSC provides a wide range of Control Loop models. The 2000's range includes all standard forms of control function being demonstrated using simple control plant. Each model is accompanied by a workbook that is accessible from the model menu bar. The workbooks consider the standard theoretical solutions to optimum control, including the Zeigler Nichols formulae. The models include full thermodynamic integrity with heat and mass balance, and most model layouts are selected from actual plant situations.

The models are designed to run on standard PCs under Windows. They may be used individually on a single PC basis, or may be networked in classrooms where an instructor can start, monitor and interact with each of the PCs as required.
