Abstract

This article describes how an industrial-scale real-time computing platform, namely, the Honeywell TDC3000, has been incorporated into the undergraduate process control course at Arizona State University. The mixing tank dynamics and gas-oil furnace control experiments described here are among 11 laboratory exercises developed for this course which provide students with unique insights on life-cycle issues in control, real-time system architecture and information needs, and the benefits of 'off-line' computer-aided design tools.
