Abstract

Wireless network has the potential in control systems because it reduces the amount of space and cost of laying wires and cables. However, wireless network has some limitations such as time delay and loss of data. This is because as the number of nodes increase, the time delay also increases. Similarly, when there are multiple loops trying to send signals at the same time within the same bandwidth, the signals only can be sent based on queue. Hence when the bandwidth is busy the signals have to be sent many times and this can cause loss of data. In order to investigate the effects of wireless network on the performance of two heat exchanger plants, several open-loop control systems have been modelled in from these plants. Transfer functions from each loop involved have been obtained through lab experiments and statistical modelling. PID tuning parameters are calculated and tuned for each loop using Ziegler-Nichols, Cohen-Coon or Skogestad tuning method. PI controllers are used for all loops in this project. Using the controller and plant parameters, the control system is recreated in Matlab TrueTime where data is transmitted over a wireless network. From Matlab TrueTime, the effects of using a wireless network in controlling a heat exchanger plant simulation are different in performance and stability of the plant. From the simulation, it can be observed that the time delay is the main factor considered. The performance of all controllers of all loops are affected by time delay in Wireless Networked Control Systems (WNCS). The rise time and the settling time are slower when simulated in Matlab TrueTime.
