Abstract : In support of a course in automatic control theory, a velocity and position control laboratory servo system was designed for use in laboratory exercises. The system is constructed using a commercially available DC motor and power amplifier, which are interfaced to a student control panel. All system changes and measurements are conducted with the control panel. The system can be operated open or closed loop, in a position or velocity control mode, and has several adjustable compensators incorporated in the signal path. This thesis provides detailed construction, wiring, and system testing steps, along with the required scale drawings, necessary to perform the hardware integration. A set of laboratory procedures, example laboratory reports, and advanced servo control problems are included for instructional purposes. Keywords: Theses; Tachometers.
