Control System Training Simulators - Simcon Process Control Simulator

SIMCON is a Windows 95/NT based Process Control Simulation Software (PCSS) that allows trainees to implement various control strategies using dynamic process models. Trainees can also develop complex control logic using intuitive but powerful flow chart control logic programming software.

Feedback Control Loop

The traditional and most widely used control strategy that can be simulated by trainees using any process with the help of PID tuning. Trainees can tune processes by changing any combinations of proportional, integral and derivative values and study its impact on the process by viewing graphic screens.

Feed Forward Control Loop

Simulate any process by changing the process load or by changing the set point thereby affecting the manipulated variable.

Override Control Loop

Override control is demonstrated by two different process control loops, one of which is a critical loop and the other is a normal loop. Mimic and Trend displays graphically convey the basics of Override Control.

Ratio Control Loop

Ratio control is demonstrated by maintaining a constant ratio of two flows by adjusting the flow rate of the wild stream. Trainees can also change PID parameters as per requirement.

Cascade Control

This practical illustrates the concept of cascade control to trainees.


With the help of this control strategy, trainees can easily grasp the effect of interaction between processes. With the help of relative gain array design, they can decouple the interacting control loops.

Dead - Time Compensation(Smith Predictor)

Trainees can compare the same process with the Smith predictor and without the Smith predictor and understand the theory of Dead-time compensation.

Internal Model Control

This practical helps trainees understand the basics of mathematical process modeling and how it can be applied to control different processes.

Modified Smith

This practical helps trainees to understand the effect of a positive zero that leads the controller output as an inverse response.

Dahlin Algoritham

This algorithm introduces trainees to the world of digital control and teaches them how to control processes with dead times.

Student Defined Algorithms

Trainees can define their own control algorithms using flow chart programming.
