Develop a Remote PID Motor Control Experiment for Engineering Technology Education–A Case Study Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • © 2016 American Society of Civil Engineers. In this paper, a new implementation approach for developing a remote PID motor controller experiment is presented. The remote PID controller experiment aims to offer students hands-on experience in demonstrating the characteristics of proportional (P), proportional-integral (PI), proportional-derivative (PD), and proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers and visualize the process of remote tuning. The new remote PID motor controller experiment based on a novel unified framework has been implemented at the Smart Materials and Structures Laboratory at University of Houston for mechanical engineering teaching. With this new remote experiment, the user can remotely conduct the PID motor controller experiment by using most of web browsers on desktops or portable devices without installing any plug-in.
