Lab 1: First Principles Modeling
This is lab 1 of 6 in the course
This lab introduces students to the principles of modeling in control theory and its importance within engineering. In the field of control systems, modeling is the established technique for initial control design allowing engineers to hone in on a set of control parameters, and test the predicted performance of the system. In this lab, students use LabVIEW to develop a model for the Quanser AERO’s thrusters to relate the voltage applied to the angular speed of the propellers.
