Abstract—Engineering courses can benefit of the use of remote labs to support teaching and online learning. A remote control system could be an effective tool to be used in practical classes and to enhance the students' experimental skills. Online experimentation represents also a very important support in engineering teaching and can be used to improve the students learning process, for example in Electrical Engineering courses, on topics such as identification and control systems. This paper describes the demonstration of an online experiment, supported by a lab system, to identify a model and to control a nonlinear electrical system. An experimental setup, based on a Wireless Sensor and Actuator Network (WSAN), is used to interact with the remote lab through a Web platform, where students can visualize and obtain data in real time from the remote system.
