Abstract

Remote laboratories are ideal for applications where the experiment is inaccessible, remote from the student or extremely expensive such that it has to be shared between different institutions. This paper describes an experiment that uses a compound pendulum controlled by a variable speed fan in order to allow the students to remotely learn the fundamentals of system modeling and automatic control. Details of the software platform, the web-page publishing and the internet connection mechanism are given in order to show the problems overcome to allow the system to be used successfully.
