QNET Control Experiments Using LabVIEW Control Design and Simulation Module

This complete set of experiments, developed by the American Univesity of Beirut, introduce traditional control systems laboratory concepts utilizing the LabVIEW Control Design and Simualtions module, NI ELVIS instrumentation connected to Quanser QNET control plants.  These plants include a DC motor control experiment, a HVAC experiment, and rotary inverted pendulum.  Each experiment is encapsulated in a .zip file and attached to this document.

Vertical Takeoff & Landing (VTOL) QNET-013Inverted Pendulum QNET-011HVAC QNET-012

Week 1: A/D and D/A (Simulation)

Week 2: Discretization (S → Z) (Simulation) 

Week 4: System identification (DC motor, HVAC, Inverted pendulum)

Week 5: Ziegler Nichols (PID Emulation) using DC motor

Week 6: Pole placement using state feedback (PPSF emulation) for the inverted pendulum

Week 7: Lag Controller (emulation) using DC Motor

Week  8: Direct Digital Control and inverse DDC using the DC Motor

Week  9: PID (Digital) using DC motor

Week 10: ON-OFF control using HVAC

*These exercises are based on LabVIEW 8.2 and NI ELVIS I.

Hello .vi developers

I downloaded the projects in this post, once open it tells me that some subvi aren't found in your libray, please search them manually, such as:

CD ctoD Converison Method.ctr
cd_Get Num Den From TF
Rendering Transfer Function Options.ctr
CD Get Data from
Should I download specific libraries or what else ??
If you have a link to these missing codes please post it here.
