    Inverted Pendulum robot not working properly

    Hello everybody, Thank you for taking the time to read this. I am building an inverted pendulum robot and I am unsatisfied with the performance I'm getting. My purpose was to build something with a PID regulator that can be tuned "on the fly" to study the effects of various changes, seeing how...

    SSRs on 240V

    I want to upgrade my kiln to digital control. Looking at using a PID to control relay to cycle kiln on/off based on temperatures in the kiln. Would I interrupt both hots, each with its own SSR? Inputs to the SSR wired parallel from the PID? Please see attached, each hot goes to its own...

    PID Controller for PWM of a linear drive motor?

    I have linear drive motor that I drive with a PWM signal of frequency 1kHz. The minimum duty cycle for the linear motor to start moving without any load is 30 %. Now I am trying to design and tune a PID controller to control the position (ranges from 0 - 10000 counts). My difficulty in...

    Trying to control a motor speed with a PID circuit.

    Hi everyone! I'm Buse. I'm trying to control a motor speed for a personal project. You can find the schematic of the circuit I found on a book. This circuit works with only the PID parts contrcuted. My problem start when I add the other parts. For example, U1 opamp (top left) is supposed to...

    PID Controlled Peltier Heating and Cooling

    My goal is to rewire a Peltier AC unit by removing the on-board PSU and Analog temperature controller. I would like to convert the AC unit to Cool and Heat by reversing the Peltier modules polarity. Then control both heating and cooling functions with a PID. Then running it all with an external...

    PIC- making potentiometer match second potentiometer not working

    I'm tryng to make a DC motor into a servo motor. The motor axle has a gear that is in sync with a gear on a potentiometer (MOTORPOT in the code) and I have another potentiometer that works as an input that the motor potentiometer should match in position however I set this pot(CONTROLPOT in...

    PID Controller Rex-C100 Help!

    Hey all, I’m new to this forum, and very new to electrics of any form. Not sure if I’m even in the right place to ask these questions but I gotta start somewhere. Im a part time knife maker and need some help with my Heat Treat Oven. Everything is built and works to an extent. When I turn the...

    Completed Project Advice on connecting heater directly to SP2 relay of PID controller?

    Hello folks, I have an old Omega CN-9121 PID Controller and a 105Watts 115V Fibre heater mantle with an inbuilt K-type CHromel-Alumel temperature thermocouple also attached into it. I plan to use the PID controller to control the temperature of the heater. Looking at the manual below: Manual...

    Embedded Derivative Control for DC motor speed

    Hi all, I am fairly new to embedded control systems, for which I am using a PSoC 5LP to implement closed-loop speed control. I am currently working out the code for the PID controller and this is the following code I have (in C): P = Kp*error; I +=ki*error; D=Kd(error-last); PID=P+I+D; Now, I...
