ECE 486: Control Systems
Fall 2017

ECE 486: Control Systems Laboratory

This laboratory section includes an introduction to MATLAB, analog simulations of arbitrary second order systems, digital simulation with SIMULINK, simulation of speed control on a DC motor, modeling a DC motor, PD Control using a Windows Target simulation, design of a Lead controller, and culminates with a final project that designs a stabilizing control for an inverted pendulum.

Lab Errata

All errors in the Lab Manual, Lab Report Templates, or Final Project Manual will be reported here as they are discovered. If you believe you have detected an error, send an email to your TA with the error location. The first discoverer (based on email time) for each error will receive a small (yet cool) prize and their name will be listed below. Your prize can be picked up during business hours at room 237A.
