If you miss the regular Lab session of Lab 2 exercise, please finish it by February 13 (one day after the midterm). (We need to remove the water column setup soon after that.) Lab #1 reports (per group) must be handed in to Lab TAs at the beginning of your Lab #2 session. Late hand-in will NOT be accepted! (Without Late hand- As part of your formal write-up, for each As writeexperiment, include Brief background Brief Objective Objective Tables and graphs Tables Answers to the questions Answers Analysis of your results Analysis Conclusions Conclusions handing in the report in time, you lose 2.5 % automatically.) 2008/09 MECH466 : Automatic Control 25 2008/09 Inlet Valve A Inlet Valve B Requirement: Tank A Tank B Proportiona l Control Valve Control Unit Valve AB Pressure Transducer A Pressure Transducer B Process Valve A Disturbance Valve Maintain the level of Tank B at a desired level by controlling the flow through control valve.

Difficult Small difference between high and low limits Small causes the chattering (rapid switching) problem. Over-reaction (Small change of water level may Overcause full action of valve.) This can be avoided by a proportional control.
