A mechanical ball on beam system was stabilized to demonstrate the capabilities of control systems. This demonstration system is intended for use in control theory classes such as 6.011 Introduction to Communication, Control, and Signal Processing, 6.302 Feedback Systems, and 6.003 Signals and Systems. Control of this unstable system is achieved through classical control methods taught in 6.302. The compensators are implemented in analog circuitry. The system was successfully demonstrated in a 6.011 lecture (April 5, 2004). A lab kit system was designed for future 6.302 students.
