FERNANDEZ-SAMACA, Liliana; RAMIREZ SCARPETTA, José Miguel e OROZCO-GUTIERREZ, Martha Lucia. Emulation and remote experimentation as support resources in a PBL approach for control systems. Rev.fac.ing.univ. Antioquia [online]. 2010, n.55, pp. 194-202. ISSN 0120-6230.
This paper presents the use of a platform with emulation and remote experimentation tools to support a Project-Based Learning approach for courses of linear-control systems. Emulation and remote experimentation are incorporated as experimentation resources in the academic activities of the approach. The platform resources allow defining projects within new contexts and observing the dynamics of control complex problems from diverse nature. Moreover, emulation is used to experiment with non-available systems in the laboratory and observe the controller performance before implementation in real contexts. This work describes the learning approach, platform, and its different operation conditions. These conditions are shown through the emulation of a DC motor model with oscillating mode. Finally, this paper presents the results of a survey used to evaluate the platform, emphasizing on the assessment of the emulation tool as a learning resource.
