DC Motor Position Control
Andrew D. Pfister and Guillermo Cardona
Advisor: Dr. R. Jetton
This project employs cascaded gain and Lag/Lead type control compensation
for the control of the angular position of a motor shaft. Essentially,
a small input angle is used to generate an error signal. This error signal
is amplified and used to turn a motor. The output angle is also converted
to an error signal, and the two signals are compared by a summing amplifier.
When the two angles are equal, the two signals are of equal magnitude and
one-hundred eighty degrees out of phase. Ultimately, this system could
be developed into a "steering by wire" control for electric automobiles.
