The availability of computers and the advancement of control techniques have provided the necessary prerequisites for efficient investigation of appliance control systems by computer simulation. This paper discusses the general approach to simulation of appliance control systems, including discussions of determination of performance specifications, mathematic modeling of the appliance, simulation of the various control strategies, computer implementation, and evaluation of the results. Advantages and limitations of computer simulation are discussed. A specific application of a range temperature control system is utilized throughout the paper to demonstrate the application of the techniques and to show the value of computer simulation.
