Engineering courses can benefit from using remote laboratories to support teaching activities and online learning. A remote control system can be an effective tool to be used in practical classes and to enhance students’ experimental skills. Online experimentation also offers a very important support in engineering teaching, and can be used to improve the students’ learning process, for instance in Electrical Engineering courses, particularly on topics related to systems and automatic control. This paper describes an online experiment demonstration, propped up on a remote lab system, aiming at identifying a model of a given nonlinear system and to design and apply controllers based on different methodologies. An experimental setup is used to interact with the remote lab through a Web-based platform, where students can visualize and collect data in real time from the available remote system.
