Mathematical models are key elements in the field of automatic control. They are required for simulation as well as design in a typical control system development. Models cannot represent every aspect of reality and assumptions must be made in order to use them for control purposes. Traditionally, for control purposes the idea has been to characterize process dynamics by a few features and parameters bearing in mind to facilitate the control design procedure. From this perspective, it has been observed that many industrial processes can be modelled using first and second order system plus time delay, perhaps including zero influences. This interactive tool isfocused on teaching and learning basic concepts about modelling and identification. Modelling and identification play fundamental roles in the field of automatic control, since it is not possible to perform a control system design without having a model describing the dynamics of the process to be controlled. The tool
presented in this work is dedicated to describe the most important aspects of basic modelling centralized on first and second order systems with dead-time and zero effects.
