Abstract
Not Available VXI-based hardware and software products have now advanced to the point where real-time data acquisition and intensive signal processing on multiple signals can be routinely handled by commercially available products. However, for specialized tasks, such as optimal process control, current software tools require a dedicated software engineer to implement downloadable code for efficient, real-time processing. In this Phase I STTR, Quadrant Engineering proposes the development of a high level software environment to implement a variety of process control algorithms that can be used by engineers or technicians without specialized software or control theory training. Working with specialist in controls from the University of Massachusetts, we plan to evaluate methods for implementing sophisticated control systems using commercially available VXI hardware and software tools. The user interface, running under Windows 95, will allow non-expert users to define control tasks using a variety of approaches, including conventional open and closed loop control, Kalman filter, fuzzy logic and neural network algorithms. During Phase I we will implement a demonstration system, including multi-channel data acquisition with multiple output channels, and loop control running in real-time on one or more dedicated processors.
