LABVIEW PROJECT SUMMARIES

This page briefly summarizes a few notable projects that I completed for a course that I was enrolled in at Purdue University. This course utilized a myRIO microprocessor for each assignment. The project files are available upon request. 


BALANCE BEAM CALIBRATION

  • Developed calibration curve for stable balance beam system
  • Observed effects of a closed loop controller on a stable system - the effect of gain on stability

AUDIO MIXER AND VEHICLE SUSPENSION ANALYSIS

  • Explored the effects of combining transfer functions in series and in parallel
  • Created an audio mixer using band pass filters and designed GUI for treble and bass control
  • Observed the response of three vehicle suspension models - racing, worn out, and nominal - and calculated their root locations to compare settling times

SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION TECHNIQUES

  • Evaluated the effectiveness of the four system identification techniques - counting tau, log linearization, log decrement, and percent overshoot -  to identify unknown signals 

DC MOTOR CONTROL

  • Utilized PWM and duty cycle to produce a response from DC motor
  • Investigated the effects of dead band on motor response based on % duty cycle

DATA ACQUISITION

  • Thermocouple and other miscellaneous measurement sensor management
