Data Acquisition and Control System for Tri-Sonic 0.3m Wind Tunnel
Authors: B. Praveen and S. Temin, Captronic Systems Private Limited, Bangalore
Challenge: Automating and controlling the various operations of a 0.3 m wind tunnel that runs in subsonic, transonic, and supersonic modes.
Solution: Automating and controlling the movement of the model based on a predefined sequence inside the wind tunnel and monitoring system parameters, alarms, and interlocks in real time while achieving the desired MACH number within the specified test time. We designed the data acquisition and control system for the trisonic 0.3 m wind tunnel using NI PXI hardware and NI LabVIEW system design software.
