Teaching and Research Labs

Automatic-Control Laboratory

The Automatic-Control Laboratory is a multi-purpose laboratory for teaching and postgraduate research. Currently the laboratory has 12 working platforms each equipped with a PC, a set of standard signal-generating and measurement instruments, a DC motor-control system, and an experimental physical plant (mechanical system or chemical system). Each computer is equipped with MATLAB and its control-related toolboxes, as well as A/D and D/A interface boards. The following experiments can be conducted in the laboratory:

Modelling and identification of physical system;
Design of feedback-control systems using CAD tools
Computer simulation of control systems
Velocity and position control of DC motors
Control of real electrical, mechanical, or chemical systems
Implementation of feedback controllers using IC chips, computers, or digital signal processors
