What you should know for this experiment

 

Start by watching the introductory video for this experiment 

 

Ensure you know how to use MATLAB. If not or you need revision do this now.

 

Ensure you read about all the equipment that you will be using in the lab

 

Visit the Control Tutorials at http://ctms.engin.umich.edu/ and study the DC Motor Speed: SYSTEM Modelling section for the DC motor transfer function by clicking on MOTOR SPEED at the top and MODELLING at the top-left under SYSTEM.  There is no need to study the state space model for this experiment in the section.

 

Visit the Control Tutorials at http://ctms.engin.umich.edu/ and study the DC Motor Position: SYSTEM Modelling section for the DC motor transfer function by clicking on MOTOR POSITION at the top and MODELLING at the top-left under SYSTEM.  There is no need to study the state space model for this experiment in the section.

 

Draw a block diagram for a DC motor in terms of resistor, inductanctor, viscous friction coefficients, moment of inertia, back emf constant and torque constant.

Determine its transfer function.
