Experiments based upon computer simulations of engineering control systems can provide students with an introduction to interesting problems of analysis and design and can complement more conventional analytical and computational work. These simulation-based studies also complement the traditional type of laboratory experiments found in most control engineering courses and extend the range of control systems applications to which students are exposed. This paper describes an analogue computer simulation of an aircraft lateral beam guidance system and gives an account of its use within a control course for undergraduate students of electronics and electrical engineering.
