myDCMotorControl is a tutorial that's been developed to help guide students through an introduction to control engineering. Control engineering can be a complex subject, but as it's used in a wide variety of engineering systems, it's a useful skill to know.
The tutorial takes the student through some basic control theory, before giving them the opportunity to experiment and vary parameters to view the effect on the system.
This tutorial uses the myDAQ hardware with an Elenco Protoboard attached.
To build the myDCMotor circuit for this lab, you will need
2x NPN transistors
2x PNP transistors
1x DC motor
1x NI myDAQ
1x Elenco Protoboard attachement.
