GOMEZ QUINTERO, MARÍA PAULA; ZABALA DOMINGUEZ, GUSTAVO ANDRÉS and DAVILA RINCON, JAVIER ANDRÉS. USE OF LABVIEW TO CONTROL SYSTEMS IN CHEMICAL ENGINEERING. Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2011, vol.78, n.169, pp. 150-157. ISSN 0012-7353.
A control system was implemented to a multipurpose plant which has a level control, temperature control and pressure control. Was developed an interface in LabView 9.1 to have a best visualization of the operation and the correct interaction with the plant was confirmed, obtaining the set-point values with a margin of error between 3 to 5%. Moreover, a simulation in Simulink of MATLAB was made to the temperature control and we found that the experimental data and the simulation are in agreement.
