Labs in NCSLab

A feedback control system wherein the control loop is closed through a real-time network is known as a networked control system (NCS). The Networked Control System Lab (NCSLab) is an Internet based laboratory that integrates various test rigs and experimental facilities of control systems around the world. Many classical, modern and advanced real-time control system simulations and experiments can be carried out in NCSLab through the Internet.

NCSLab was originally designed by the Advanced Control and Network Technology Research Unit in the University of Glamorgan, UK and was launched in November 2006. The NCSLab in Wuhan University was launched in 2011.

Currently, there are five control system sub-labs in NCSLab:
