Research /Laboratory Facilities

Thermal Process Control Apparatus

thermal control apparatus

The CE103 Thermal Process Control Apparatus is one of a unique range of products designed especially for the theoretical study and practical investigation of basic and advanced control engineering principles. This includes the analysis of static and dynamic systems using analogue and or digital techniques.

The CE103 relates specially to heat and heat transfer control problems as thet would typically occur in process control industries. It may also, however be used as a practical introduction to the design, operation and application of control systems in general.

The experiments are written on the assumption that the CE103 will be monitored and controlled by the analogue facilities contained within the CE102 controller.

The experiment topics which can be investigated using the CE103 include,
  • 1.Heat transfer
  • 2.On/Off or relay control, experiment includes investigation of overshoot and undershoot , On and Off time ratio, variable rates of heating and cooling, together with off-set and hysteresis.
  • 3.Proportional (P), Proportional + Integral (PI) and Proportional +Integral +Differential (PID) control. The experiments consider stability, frequency response etc.
  • 4.Used of Feed forward control
  • 5.Thermal inertia and variable time-constants
  • 6.Multi-function control –up to three variables to be monitored and individually controlled.

The flexible design of the equipment enables many other analysis and control exercises to be developed by the user to suit his local requirements. This includes extended or advanced control experiments. The equipment is also ideal for the student project work.

Basic Satellite Trainers

Classroom Satellite Trainer (EyasSat Nano-Satellite)

EyasSat is a nano-sat demonstrator suitable for use in the lab environment for a teaching and learning experience. It basically demonstrates the functionality of a typical satellite system built up from modules representing subsystems. Starting from the bottom, we currently have the EyasSat stack configured as follows:

  • Electrical Power Subsystem (EPS) Module
  • Data Handling Subsystem (IHU) Module
  • Communications (COM) Module
  • Experiment/Payload Module (optional)
  • Attitude Determination and Control (ADCS) Module
  • The Thermal Subsystem is located throughout
  • Subsystems are enclosed in the Structure

Attitude Determination and Control Systems Units

  • Lab Equipment: Attitude Determination and Control System Control Unit (ADCSCU) Trainer and Digital Sun Sensor
  • Objectives: To perform the data transmission from the ground station computer to onboard attitude determination and control unit

Centrifugal Fan Trainer

Fans are mechanical instruments that allow to move great gas flows as a result of the pressure increase generated. There are two basic types of air moving devices : the centrifugal fan or blower , and the axial flow fan. Generally, centrifugal fans are more suitable for lower flows at high pressures than their axial counterparts.

The centrifugal fan is a radial flow machine that produces the necessary pressure to move gas by the centrifugal force built up inside the fan casing. The gas comes out in a radial way in relation to the shaft of the fan.

Centrifugal fans are usually employed for ventilating duties.

The Computer Controlled Centrifugal Fan Teaching Trainer, “HVCC” allows the students to study the operation characteristics of a centrifugal fan,. For that purpose, the unit carries out the measurements of flow, speed, temperature, pressure and humidity.

Thermal Radiation Units

The WL362 Thermal Radiation Unit is intended for the investigation of radiation laws using thermal and optical radiation as examples.

The unit has a heat source, in the form of a black body radiator, and a thermopile that measures the intensity of the radiation. It also has a light source, a luxmeter to measure illuminance, and thermocouples to measure temperatures.

Furthermore, colour filters and an aperture are supplied for observing the effect of coloured light on the illuminance. In order to be able to study Kirchhoff’s laws, various absorption plates complete with thermocouples are also provided. All the components can be easily mounted on a frame.

With the aid of the data acquisition card and software provided (only WL 362) , the values measured can be fed to a PC and evaluated.

The following topics can be addressed with the unit:
  • 1.Lambert’s Direction Law (Cosine Law)
  • 2.Lambert’s Distance Law
  • 3.Stefan-Boltzamm’s Law
  • 4.Kirchhoff’s Law(absorption, reflection, emission)
  • 5.Investigations on the wavelengths of light
