Unformatted text preview: Brandon Staub (1972) EE 3530 Controls Ball and Beam Design Project December 16, 2005 Executive Summary The objective of the Feedback Control Loop of a Ball and Beam System project is to design a control system based on the information given in the design project packet and what was learned in the EE 3530 Controls lecture. Referring to Fig. 1, the system as a whole will be used to manipulate the movement of a ball along a beam in an effort to position it in the middle of the beam. The design of a control system inside another control system is necessary to accomplish this goal. The inner control system, the DC Servo, will monitor and direct the reference angle of the beam. The outer loop will monitor and control the position of the ball with the help of the inner loop. Fig. 1 Table of Contents I. Designing a Position Control Loop for the DC Servo A.
