The first lab will be Wednesday, September 8. Guidelines for lab write-ups are posted here.
These labs are tentative only since we may change some towards the end of the class.
Lab 1: Simulating Control Systems with Simulink and Matlab (Mon 9/13/2004 & Wed 9/8/2004)
Lab writeup due 9/20 and 9/15 for Monday and Wednesday lab sections respectively. Make sure to look at the guidelines!
Lab 2: Simple Feedback Circuit (Mon 9/20/2004 & Wed 9/15/2004)
Lab writeup due 10/4 and 9/29 for Monday and Wednesday lab sections respectively. Make sure to follow the guidelines!
Lab 3: Phase-Locked Loop (Mon 10/4/2004 & Wed 9/29/2004)
Prelab due 10/4 and 9/29 for Monday and Wednesday lab sections respectively. This does not have to be formally written up for now, but will need to be included in your report later.
Lab writeup due 10/18 and 10/13 for Monday and Wednesday lab sections respectively. Make sure to look at the guidelines!
Lab 4: Phase Shift Oscillator (Mon 10/18/2004 & Wed 10/13/2004)
Lab 5: Magnetic Levitation Controller I (Mon 11/1/2004 & Wed 11/3/2004)
Lab 6: Magnetic Levitation Controller II (Mon 11/8/2004 & Wed 11/10/2004)
Lab 6 prelab is due on 11/8 and 11/10 respectively. Be sure to do this before lab so that you can get started building your controller!
Lab 5/6 writeups will be due together the week before Thanksgiving (11/22 and 11/24). Be sure to include calculations from the lab6 prelab.
Lab 7: Intro to Microcontrollers (Mon 11/22/2004 & Wed 11/25/2004)
Lab 7: Digital Servo Control (Mon 11/29/2004 & Wed 12/1/2004)
This is a new lab for this year, and will therefore be tweaked as we go. Send me an email if you have any feedback to make it better.
**** This is a tentative lab schedule only.
