The paper intends to present an application of techniques and methodologies of automatic control design - already developed and successfully experimented by EICAS in automatic control design - to the control of the ACUREX field of the Plataforma Solar de Almera (PSA). The application has been realised within the ACODUASIS Project, a three-years project founded by the European Commission in the frame of the Innovation Program aiming at transferring to the robotics sector the EICAS methodology by means of the high professional software tool named EICASLAB. The following innovative aspects can be highlighted: "automated algorithms and code generation", "model identification", "control parameters numerical optimisation" and "default fine model class". The use of EICASLAB reduces time spent in the design phase, increases companies' competitiveness and reduces the time to response.
