Title: Direct current motor (advanced)
Description: This system is a DC motor with a rev counter. The motor moves a load which consists in a steel disc. An adjustable magnetic break applies a viscous friction effect, allowing therefore the modification of the time constant of this first order system. The angular position and velocity of the motor are controlled adjusting the input voltage. The position is measured with a potentiometer connected to the axis of the motor. The advanced version of this lab allows uers to program their own controllers instead of just using the PID implemented in the basic version.
