TEMPERATURE AND LEVEL CONTROL OF A MULTIVARIABLE WATER TANK PROCESS ABSTRACTThe paper is concerned with the design of a water tank process and experimental evaluation offeedback control structures to achieve water level and temperature control at desired set pointvalues. The manipulated variables are the water outflow and heat supply to the tank. Detailed,first principles-based, dynamic models as well as empirical models for this interactive andmultivariable process have been developed and used for controller design. Furthermore, thisexperimental study entails and discusses the design of the water tank process and associatedinstrumentation, real time data acquisition and control using the DeltaV distributed controlsystem (DCS), process modeling, controller design, and evaluation of the performance of severaltuning methodologies in a closed loop manner. This student work was submitted in partialfulfillment of the requirements of the Senior Project in Controls and Instrumentation course atthe Engineering Technology department of XXX University.
