    Abstract

    A feedback control system for incorporation into an Engineering Technology controls laboratory is developed. The purpose of developing a working control system is to reinforce controls theory taught in the classroom. A control system for positioning an air cylinder driven load platform was selected for the design. The instructional benefit of selecting a position control system was that the reaction of the control system could be readily observed as the platform returned to the set position point.
