A basic control system simulation
This page shows an example of running a simulation of a closed-loop control system, consisting of a single elementary control unit.
The configuration of the sample system, as shown in the image above, can be found in the file 004-001-ControlSimulation.odg.
Clockwise, from the top of the triangle, the functions are,
- the reference,
- the output,
- the simulated feedback path (World),
- the input function, which adds the world and the disturbance,
- a step disturbance, and,
- the pause function.
If you load and run the system you will get displays similar to the following:
Try changing some of the values to see the effect on the live system.
