  • LabVIEW Control Design and Simulation Bundle

This 3 hour short course is designed as an instructor led and self study introduction to the control design process. This includes modeling, designing a controller, simulating the controller, and deploying a controller using LabVIEW, the Control Design Toolkit and the Simulation Module. The course includes a presentation, manual, exercises, and solutions.

Course Overview

NI offers several tools for professors, researchers, and students to analyze and simulate dynamic systems and design and deploy control systems. These tools help students gain a better understanding of linear systems and control design concepts by facilitating a hands-on, experiential learning environment that is flexible and interactive in nature.
