Recent advancement in computer multimedia has brought in a new teaching media for laboratory experimentations. The extensive application of computers and the availability of software convey motivation to develop virtual experiments in control laboratory. These virtual experiments demonstrate the experiments of basic position control system and help students to discover the theories learned in the classroom. This may be realized through some interactive animation of the experiments. These supplementary virtual experiments may minimize the problem of inflexible learning time and place, large size of class and limited functional equipments in a conventional control laboratory. In addition, these virtual experiments offer performance almost like the real experiments because they are developed using the same concept like the real experiments. As a result, students are possible to interact with equipments in the virtual experiments without applying any programming on a computer and they learn basic concept of a position control system at their own pace. Hence, the approach of virtual experiments has significant contribution in the engineering education system.
