  • Setting the Parameters of Proportional-Integral-Derivative Controllers
    • Authors: Atherton; D. P.
      Pages: 273 - 277
      Abstract: This note starts by discussing what is regarded as the pioneering work in proportional–integral–derivative controller tuning by Ziegler and Nichols. The basic concepts in their paper, rather than the specific tuning rules they presented, are held to be their major contributions. It is then explained with some brief theory how the ideas have been developed and how with modern technology the loop cycling method has been automated.

  • Developing and Remote Controlling a Multi-Zone Cooling Plant using Web
           Services and a Secure Token Mechanism
    • Authors: Kirbas; I.
      Pages: 278 - 284
      Abstract: This study involves developing a realistic multi-zone cooling plant model with three independent zones and controlling it via a USB-connected computer. Each cooling zone can have different temperature settings, and all parameters are configured by automation control software which is written in C# language. The cooling system has two cascade connected compressors, three solenoid valves and five fans. All these devices are driven by a specially developed microcontroller-based electronic control card. The developed system enables all control parameters and temperature values to be set and monitored by any Internet-connected remote device using web service technology and a secure token mechanism.

  • A Measurement System for Shape Memory Alloy Wire Actuators
    • Authors: Daudpoto, J; Dehghani-Sanij, A, Richardson, R.
      Pages: 285 - 288
      Abstract: In this paper, an experimental set-up for the measurement of actuation properties of shape memory alloy wire actuators is presented. A test rig is designed and developed to characterise shape memory alloy wire actuators. The test rig is equipped with force, displacement and temperature sensors. The test rig is validated by measuring the strain of bi-atomic nickel–titanium shape memory alloy actuators by supplying various actuation currents. At 420 mA, the 0.15-mm-diameter nickel–titanium actuators underwent 3.25% strain which lies within the guideline range (3%-4%) reported by the manufacturer of the actuators.
