Presenting the project to the students.

Students (both campus students and online students) organize the groups of two themselves. Deadline for sending names of group members to teacher Finn in email (finn.haugen@usn.no) is 16:00 on Wednesday 22 August. Those who want the teacher to organize the groups, can write this in an email to finn.haugen@usn.no.

Campus students (not online students): Compulsory exercise in student groups: Monitoring and control of an air heater using LabVIEW. Deadline of demonstration to the teacher or assistants (in the classroom): 12:00 on 11 Sept 2018.

Note: It is assumed that you have watched the following videos before the exercise:

         The video on the home page of the air heater (you donít have to care about the mathematical model presented on the home page now; it will be used in later assignments)

         The video ďAnalog IO with LabVIEW and NI USB-6008Ē (only until 27:30) available from here.

 

The online students should watch the videos as a part of this lesson although they will not do any practical work.

Averaging level control
(2018)

This recording is from the course PEF3006 Process Control 5.11 2018. The recording made in the lecture in Control Engineering was not successful because the camera was focusing outside the canvas for some time
L However, the recording in Process Control is based on the same PPT and the same simulations.

Lecture: Plantwide control
