Abstract

The requirements of technical practice for the quality of university graduates continue to grow. The quality of teaching and the related working possibilities of students after graduation largely depend on the degree in which the curriculum corresponds with techniques currently used in practice. Besides excursions to specialized firms, a significant factor is the opportunity to learn about the studied techniques and technologies through various models. In this respect, an irreplaceable role belongs to physical models which students prefer due to their clarity and authenticity. In a laboratory environment, the exact physical realization of pedagogical models of most metallurgical technologies is not fully possible. Material heating, a very common technology utilized in metallurgy, can be successfully implemented in laboratories under certain restrictions. For this purpose, we built an electrical analogue of multi-zone walking beam heating furnace which allows students to easily implement certain measurements that are rarely feasible in real practice. This provides the necessary data for identification, modelling and simulation of processes which take place in the furnace. Students thus can design and implement both continuous and pulse controls and optimize the operation of the entire aggregate.
