Lab 2: Half-Quad PD Control
This is lab 2 of 4 in the course
by Quanser Inc.
In this lab, students will be exposed to some basic specifications for a half-quadrotor system, and learn how to design a controller to meet those specifications. In most systems, there are two types of control methodologies - open loop control and closed loop control. In the former, the control effort is proportional to the output variable. To automate this system, a feedback from the system can be used to modulate the control effort and bring the output variable to a setpoint or the desired value.
