Introduction  

Closed loop speed control of dc motor is a common experiment for studying various features of automatic control systems like control, regulation and disturbance rejection. The present unit is designed to demonstrate the working of PWM and SCR based controllers and show the resulting waveforms of the voltage supplied to the motor. Measurement of the timings on the waveforms under various conditions has been suggested to get a good insight into the operation of the system. The experiment is complete with all the sub-systems and a detailed operating literature is included which introduces the basic theory, suggested experiments and an interpretation of the results. An external CRO is all that is needed to view the waveforms and measure the timings.
