Distributed Controls Lab

The Distributed Controls Lab consists of eight stations containing small-format computers and a mix of equipment and instrumentation. The smaller computers and instruments as well as an upper shelf for storage allow a large amount of workspace per station for students. Each station provides an oscilloscope, function generator, digital multimeter, and power supply, and storage cabinets provide necessary storage for parts, tools, and projects.

Courses within the Distributed Controls Lab focus on control engineering, specifically control systems, which can be described as a device or devices that manage or regulate the behavior of other devices. In particular, the lab hosts a project-oriented course that allows students to implement, test, and evaluate a control system. In this course, students work in teams to build, test and demonstrate equivalent analog and digital control solutions for a single device. Students gain experience in project management, testing, and team work, and familiarize themselves with concepts, software, and hardware utilized in more advanced areas of electrical engineering.
