Name: Interactive Ball and Beam Experiment
ID: m14028
Language: English (en)
Summary: The ball and beam experiment represents a simple second order system. This system is easily simulated using four states, but is more difficult to implement in real-life because not all necessary variables are easily observed. This simulation assumes all four states are easily observed and the system is linear throught the operating region. The plant model and the controller of the system are simulated in LabVIEW using the LabVIEW Simulation Module.
