Modern Pedagogy Techniques for DC Motor Speed Control

Authors: Rajesh Kumar, Puneet Aggarwal, Roopali Dogra

Abstract:

Based on a survey conducted for second and third year students of the electrical engineering department at Maharishi Markandeshwar University, India, it was found that around 92% of students felt that it would be better to introduce a virtual environment for laboratory experiments. Hence, a need was felt to perform modern pedagogy techniques for students which consist of a virtual environment using MATLAB/Simulink. In this paper, a virtual environment for the speed control of a DC motor is performed using MATLAB/Simulink. The various speed control methods for the DC motor include the field resistance control method and armature voltage control method. The performance analysis of the DC motor is hence analyzed.

Keywords: Virtual Environment, Speed Control, Voltage Control, DC motor, field control, pedagogy techniques
