In this study, the design and implementation of a general control system platform for educational purposes was performed. This project has been designed to facilitate the understanding of control systems in mechanical engineering by creating a foundational system to position-control the rotation of a DC motor, and then employing it as a teaching tool in the undergraduate Control Systems course at Loyola Marymount University (LMU). The objective of this effort was to lay the groundwork for a more “hands-on” control systems education at LMU by designing the general mechanical platform and a pilot on-off controller to illustrate its functionality and feasibility in the classroom. With the foundational stages complete, students in future classes will be able to design and build different controllers for this same device in order to investigate and apply their newly-acquired knowledge of control systems.
