Simulator of Dynamical Systems and PID Control based on Java Language

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, a Java-based simulator of dynamical systems and PID control is presented. This simulator implements linear low-order process models, open-loop architecture and closed-loop architecture with a PID linear feedback controller. The main contribution is a Java application that can be used by the instructor / user in a blended learning environment to teach / learn the basic notions of dynamical systems behavior, some notions of systems stability, perform time domain analysis and frequency domain analysis, and also analyze the effect of PID control in the closed-loop system.
