Although manual tuning is a simple and effective way to tune the gains of a system, it requires expertise and knowledge of the device. Students will learn about quantitative methods that can be used to get close to optimal gains as a starting point, such as the Ziegler Nichols method, the Tyreus Luyben method, etc. In this lab, students will model the Quanser Aero as a second-order system, and the corresponding PID design by specification.
LabVIEW is systems engineering software for applications that require test, measurement, and control with rapid access to hardware and data insights.
Provides reconfigurable I/O that allows you to teach and implement multiple design concepts with one device.
The Quanser AERO is a fully integrated lab experiment consisting of two propellers, powered by DC motors, designed for teaching mechatronics and controls concepts at the undergraduate level, as well as for advanced aerospace research applications.
