M E 355
Dynamic Systems Laboratory (1) Experimental investigation of simple position, velocity, and temperature control systems with analog and digital controllers.
M E 355 Dynamic Systems Laboratory (1)
The objective of the Dynamic Systems Laboratory is to enable students to experimentally investigate the calibration, response characteristics, modeling, and control of mechanical and fluid systems.
This course is intended to allow students to develop some hands-on experience and working knowledge of basic dynamic and control systems. Specifically, to
1. Identify the actuators, sensors, plants, and controllers of physical control systems.
2. Calibrate encoders, temperature, laser displacement, and flow sensors.
3. Measure steady state, step, and frequency response of thermal, fluid, and mechanical systems.
4. Compare simulation and experimental results to validate theoretical model.
5. Design PID controllers for thermal, fluid, and mechanical systems.
6. Implement and test PID controllers for thermal, fluid, and mechanical systems.
