  • 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

National Instruments 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.
