Hybrid Remote Laboratory for Testing New, Complex and Advanced Controllers

Aldo R. Sartorius Castellanos, Member, IACSIT, José de J. Moreno Vázquez, Raúl Antonio Ortíz, and Antonia Zamudio Radilla
Abstract—In this paper it is presented a Hybrid Remote Laboratory System (HRLS), which is a remote laboratory focused in automatic control. The main objective of this laboratory is to permit the users to learn to adjust predefined controllers and to design their own controllers for testing them later over a set of physical devices through Internet and analyze their performance. The controllers designed by the users can use S-Functions (Simulink-Functions) created using C language; permitting the creation and implementation of complex controllers in an easy and fast way. The HRLS uses Matlab-Simulink for practice processing and the Real Time Workshop Toolbox (RTW) such as real time kernel. The HRLS lets to integrate new processes for carrying out controller tests. At present three devices are available: a DC motor, a robot manipulator and an electro pneumatic cylinder. The laboratory has been used in identification and control theory in postgraduate courses in Instituto Tecnológico de Minatitlan in Mexico as well with Mechanical and Automatic Engineering students in Universidad Central “Marta Abreu” de las Villas and in Universidad de Cienfuegos, both located in Cuba.
