This article describes a workflow for creating a plant transfer function from input-output test data and using it to automatically tune PID controller gains. The entire workflow is completed using the PID Tuner app in Control System Toolbox™.
This article illustrates a top-down methodology for the design and FPGA implementation of a DPD, from an algorithmic description DPD in MATLAB to design elaboration in Simulink and HDL code generation for FIL testing.
Students use MATLAB and Simulink to process lab data and model and simulate open-and closed-loop systems. Simulink and Real-Time Windows Target enable them to connect control design theory with practical implementation.
As any airline passenger who has experienced moderate turbulence knows, an aircraft is not a rigid structure. In certain circumstances, the complex interaction between the flexible structure and the aerodynamics can produce undesirable effects.
