This lab is an application of feedback control for temperature control. In particular, this lab teaches:
The difference between manual and automatic control
Step tests to generate dynamic data
Fitting dynamic data to build a simple First Order Plus Deadtime (FOPDT) model
Obtaining parameters for a PID control from standard tuning rules
Tuning the PID controller to improve performance
Dynamic modeling with first principles
Dynamic data reconciliation
Model Predictive Control
