    Hi guys ,

    I,m beginner in this way , i need to build a analog pid controller for controlling dc motor position , for my project of mechatronics 1 .

    Now i have no idea where i must start and what do i need to buy .

    Its my first project and i think i need to buy some tools like power supply or multimeter and etc

    I appreciate you all if u help me to start ,

    Perhaps you need to start with what motor you are using and what controller electronics.

    Are you going to do an analogue or a digital controller?

    What are the motor drive requirements?

    Are you controlling speed of position, as in a dc motor or as with a stepper motor, both of which can sometimes be referred to as dc motors?

    What is the feedback mechanism?

    Thank's for your reply ,

    I need analog controller to control position of dc motor .

    I need very simple circuit because this is not my final course project ,

    About feedback i think pot may be enough for this circuit .

    All i know about this projects is that i must build analog pid controller for dc motor to control motor position
