H-infinity Control of DC Motor Part II : Controller Implementation

From H-infinity Control of DC Motor Part I : Plant Modeling and Controller Synthesis, we discuss essential steps required to achieve a controller for DC motor plant, from estimating a plant model by least-square identification, adjusting weighting functions, formulating a … Continue reading

H-infinity Control of DC Motor Part I : Plant Modeling and Controller Synthesis

is a recent linear control scheme that often sounds intimidating to a new control engineering student. And she might have in her mind already “Geez, this beast must require expensive control design software and run only on state-of-the-art laboratory hardware … Continue reading

DC Motor Speed Control Part I: Open-Loop Command

In this article, we discuss speed control of a simple brushed DC motor with incremental encoder feedback. A standard PID algorithm is implemented on PIC24EP256MC202, a 70 MIPS microcontroller from Microchip. We focus on constructing an experimental platform using a … Continue reading
