A Remote Laboratory for a Basic Course on Control Engineering

Isidro Calvo, E. Zulueta, F. Oterino, J. M. Lopez-Guede


The current work presents a remote laboratory for a basic course in control engineering over which several experiments may be performed. The proposed experiments have been carefully selected in order to illustrate the maximum number of concepts learnt in the classroom over a unique plant, a Ball & Hoop system. In this work, Labview has been used to acquire and handle process data whereas OPC technology is used to connect remote servers with web-integrated front-end applications. This choice has been made on the basis that these tools do not require very advanced skills and may be a reasonable approach for a wide range of simple remote laboratories.
