GE 320 Lab 3
Introduction
In this lab, we determined the plants transfer function by measuring physical parameters of the
system used to derive the equations and then computing the overall transfer function.
The physical quantities of the DC motor were ma

GE 320 Lab 1
Introduction
In this lab, the class was introduced to the lab equipment and software that will be used in future labs.
The potentiometer and the tachometer were used to determine the speed and position of a DC motor.
The dead zone of the DC m

1.1 Introduction
Controllers are built from mechanical and electrical building blocks. Mechanical
controllers are usually implemented with shafts, gears, pulleys, lever arms etc. Electrical
controllers, on the other

Introduction
This lab introduces new methods for estimating the transfer function of a plant (in our case,
the DC motor). Recall that in Experiment 2

The Laplace Transform (Intro)
The Laplace transform is a mathematical tool based on integration that has a number of applications. It particular, it can simplify the solving of many differential equations. We will nd
it particularly useful when dealing
