Abstract
This paper proposes to develop a simulation framework that can be used in the development of such digital control systems in academic environments. The Control System Plant Simulator simulates the object a digital control system designer wishes to control – referred to as a “Plant”. The Control System Plant Simulator follows the Hardware-In-The-Loop concept in that it takes the place of a physical plant. Designed and implemented controllers are attached to the Control System Plant Simulator, which will behave just as an actual plant will from the viewpoint of the controller. The simulator read input from a controller external to the host computer of the simulator. It evaluate the input in real-time, and provide output to the controller just as the actual plant will. Individuals can use the tool to prototype control systems without being forced to use expensive or limited physical resources. This allows for the education of the next generation of control system designers and implementers in a more realistic setting. The Control System Plant Simulator (CSPS) as a flexible framework for simulating plant models in control system implementation projects.
