Real-time Control Implementation of Simple Mechatronic Devices Using MATLAB/Simulink/RTW PlatformAbstractIn this paper digital control solutions for speed control of d.c. motor and level control ofdual water tank system are described using conventional control algorithms such as (PID( Proportional + Integral + Derivative) and PI ( Proportional + Integral)) as well asintelligent control algorithms based on fuzzy logic. The control algorithms are developedin the Simulink graphical programming environment. Using Real-time Workshop (RTW)build tools an optimized C–code is generated and compiled for real-time execution on thedevices using a Visual C/C++ compiler, seamlessly. Appropriate software tools have alsobeen utilized to allow remote activation of the systems. This capability allows realisticCAD (Computer Aided Design) drawings that accurately represent the physical systemson the remote terminals to exhibit appropriate motion corresponding to the actualmovement of the physical system in the Laboratory. The set-up is used for experientiallearning and research efforts involving engineering and computer science majors at theuniversity, as well as for demonstration purposes for the introductory Control Systems(ENGE 382) and Instrumentation (ENGE 380) courses offered by the author forengineering majors.
