Abstract

During the last decade, several process control software products have appeared on the market. While presenting educational courses for industrial control engineers, a special attention is given to the presentation and usage of process control software tools, because this knowledge is currently necessary in all phases of a control system's life cycle. Practical courses from the areas of computer automation and control are presented using a process control laboratory that is technologically highly equipped with commercially available industrial sensors and actuators, different industrial controllers, and monitored by a computer control system. The first part of the paper describes the design of the process laboratory, and the second part presents software products use
