The ball and beam control system consists of a small metal ball, a beam, a motor, and an analogue or digital process controller. Two sensors are also required. One is for detecting the position of the ball on the beam and the other is for detecting the angular position of the servo. Both of these sensors are connected to the process controller. The beam is a half meter length with two parallel tensioned wires mounted on it. The two wires are pmi of the sensor for detecting the position of the ball on the beam and the ball rolls up and down on them. One ended of the beam is connected to a servo motor while the other ended is fixed. The controller used in this project is PIC 16F877A .The controller compares the desired position of the ball on the beam with its actual position. It then acts through the motor to change the angle of the beam. This causes the ball to roll towards its desired position. As it nears to the desired position, the angle of the beam is reduced so as to bring the ball to a stop at its desired position with a little overshoot as possible. This report shows the approach used to obtain a valid solution to this problem, as well as the design and development of the controllers were implemented for the system. The Ball and Beam project is intended to be used as a demonstrational device on control systems to attract potential students forward electrical engineering field and control systems design.
