The paper addresses the nonlinear control design problem for a two tank system. Three crucial industrial parameters i.e. temperature, level and flow are used in this work. Mathematical modeling of the proposed two tank system is presented in this work and the proposed system is also implemented using Lab View. Industrial parameters are controlled by Fuzzy PID controller which greatly improves the performance of the system. This system can be adopted by industries to improve their processes and it can also be used by academia for teaching purposes. This system provides real time simulation and hardware implementation which provide aid in learning for the graduate and undergraduate control students.
