More information:
This is a simplied PID Loop simulator for industrial process control, in this example, a water tank with PID Loop level control. The model was designed for students to learn how industrial processes are controlled using computers. Users can manipulate the valves (manual or auto), and change PID values to alter the control of the water tank. For VB education, there are slider controls, form graphics, and real-time graphing examples. I hope users find this program useful.
