Regulation and control theory is divided into two major divisions in, namely, classical and modern. The implementation of classical controller designs as compared to systems designed using modern control theory is easier and these controllers are preferred in most industrial applications. The most common controllers designed using classical control theory, are PID controllers.

The Computer Controlled Teaching Unit for the Study of Regulation and Control, “RYC”, allows the students to simulate an integrator system, a first order system and a second order system and regulate them with a PID controller or Lead & Lag compensator. The unit also allows to simulate perturbations and offsets to analyze the response of the system.

A wide range of applications: DC Servo Motor Module, Ball and Beam Module, etc. for working with the “RYC” unit are available to study a real control systems response to complement the Study of regulation and control in real time.

This Computer Controlled Unit is supplied with the EDIBON Computer Control System (SCADA), and includes: The unit itself + a

Control Interface Box + a Data Acquisition Board + Computer Control, Data Acquisition and Data Management Software Packages, for controlling the process and all parameters involved in the process.

RYC. Unit:


 Metallic box.

 Reference signals module:

This module allows to generate four different

types of signals: step, square, ramp and sine.

The frequency and amplitude of the signals can

be adjusted through the computer.

Step output. Square output. Ramp output.

Sine output.

Step: amplitude: 0 V to 5 V, frequency: 0Hz

to 200 Hz.

Square: amplitude: ±10 V, frequency: 0Hz to

200 Hz.

Ramp: amplitude: ±10 V, frequency: 0Hz to

200 Hz.

Sine: amplitude: ±10 V, frequency: 0Hz to

200 Hz.

Frequency sweep: this module performs a

frequency sweep needed for calculating the

Bode plot.

 PID controller module:

This module is subdivided into proportional, integrative and derivative blocks. The module allows

to adjust each parameter independently from the computer:

 P controller: Kc: -10 to +10. I controller: Ti: 0 to 100 s. D controller: Td: 0 to 100 s.

 Sample time: 0.1 to 100 ms.

 Lead/Lag compensator:

This module represents a compensator system in the Laplace domain. The system allows to modify

the zero, the pole and the gain of the compensator through the computer:

 K lead: 1 to 100 s. K lag: 1 to 100 s. Gain: 1 to 10. Sample time: 0.1 to 100 ms.

 Integrator system:

This module represents and integrator system in the Laplace domain. The system allows to modify

the gain and the saturation valve of the system through the computer:

 Gain: -10 to 10.

 Saturation: -10 to 10.

 First order system:

This module represents a first order system in the Laplace domain. The system allows to modify

the time constant of the system through the computer. The gain can be also adjusted using the


 Gain: 0 to 10. Time constant T: 0 to 100 s.

 Second order system:

This module represents a second order system in Laplace domain. The system allows to modify

through the computer the three parameters of the system: gain, damping coefficient and the

natural frequency:

 Gain: 1 to 10.

 Damping coefficient x: 0 to 1.5 in steps of 0.1.

 Natural frequency (w n): 1Hz to 2 p*100 rad/s (100 Hz).

 Perturbation module:

This module allows to insert disturbances in the systems. The perturbation can be inserted in

different places of the control loop:

 Perturbation value: -10 to 10.

 Offset module:

 This module allows to add an offset to the input signal.

 Offset value: -10 to 10.

 Analog Inputs:

This module is provided with 4 analog inputs. The inputs are used to visualize different signals in

the computer.

 Connector to computer.

 Control Interface included.
