I hope you all will be absolutely fine and having fun. Today, I am going to share a list of tutorials on DC Motor Projects using different software e.g. Arduino, Matlab and NI LabVIEW. I have already shared these tutorials but they are posted randomly. So, today I thought that I should combine all those tutorials into a single one. So I am going to share the links of all of those tutorials in this tutorial so that it may be helpful for engineering students or anyone who wants to visit. This tutorial will help you to visit all of my tutorials related to DC motor control.

The links of all the tutorials will be given and you will be able to download the desired tutorial from the corresponding link. I will make separate sections for each software to control DC motor. In each section all the possible controls of DC motor will be given in detail. If you have any sort of problem, you can ask in comments. I will try my level best to solve your issues. In today’s tutorial, I have simply combined all the DC Motor Projects posted on our blog. I will update this list in future. So, let’s get started with DC Motor Projects:

DC Motor Direction Control – DC Motor Projects

In this section of DC Motor Projects, I will provide you the list of the tutorials in which I have already controlled the direction of the DC motor using three different software e.g. Arduino, Matlab and NI LabVIEW. I have used the same hardware and Arduino source code in all of these tutorials. In case of Matlab and NI LabVIEW I have sent commands through the serial monitor towards Arduino and hence the whole system works. So, let’s get started with these DC Motor Projects:

1- DC Motor Direction Control using Arduino

dc motor projects,DC motor control tutorials, DC motor control articles, Control DC motor articles, control DC motor articles, How to control DC motor, DC motor controls tutorials

In the tutorial DC Motor Direction Control using Arduino, I have interfaced a DC motor with Arduino UNO board to control its clockwise and counter clockwise direction. I have used a motor controller named as H-Bridge to control the direction of DC motor. It can simultaneously control two DC motors. The algorithm was very simple. Commands for clockwise and counter clockwise rotation are sent through the serial monitor of Arduino software. Its one of the basic DC Motor Projects.

These commands are then passed to the motor controller and then it decides the direction of rotation of DC motor after manipulating the Arduino commands. Direction of DC motor can be reversed by simply changing the polarity so L298 controls the direction of the DC motor by continuously making its pins low, high and vice versa.

2- DC Motor Direction Control using Matlab

DC motor control tutorials, DC motor control articles, Control DC motor articles, control DC motor articles, How to control DC motor, DC motor controls tutorials In this DC Motor Project, I have done the DC Motor Direction Control in Matlab, I have created a simple Graphical User interface (GUI) in Matlab having three different buttons for controlling the clockwise, counter clockwise direction of the Dc motor and to stop the DC motor as well. Two more buttons are also there on the GUI for opening and closing the serial port.

As we press any of the buttons, corresponding command is sent through the serial port from Matlab to Arduino and then Arduino transfers those commands to the H Bridge and hence the entire process gets completed. Pressing the Open Serial Port button, serial port will be opened and we will be able to communicate with the Arduino using serial communication and at the end we must close the serial port in order to avoid the exchange of unnecessary commands being sent through the serial port.

3- DC Motor Direction Control using NI LabVIEW

DC motor control tutorials, DC motor control articles, Control DC motor articles, control DC motor articles, How to control DC motor, DC motor controls tutorialsIn the tutorial DC Motor Direction Control in NI LabVIEW, I have controlled the clockwise and counter clockwise direction of the DC motor using serial communication between NI LabVIEW and Arduino. Commands like C, S and are sent through NI LabVIEW towards Arduino for clockwise rotation of the DC motor, stop the DC motor and anti clockwise rotation of the same DC motor respectively.

There are three different buttons on the front panel of NI LabVIEW. These buttons are used to send commands C, S and from NI LabVIEW to Arduino using Serial communication.

4- DC Motor Direction Control with Arduino in Proteus

DC motor control tutorials, DC motor control articles, Control DC motor articles, control DC motor articles, How to control DC motor, DC motor controls tutorialsIn the tutorial, DC Motor Direction Control with Arduino in Proteus, I have designed a complete simulation in Proteus, which will help you in understanding the controlling of DC motor. I have designed DC Motor Drive Circuit in Proteus ISIS. for the DC Motor Direction Control.

I have provided the complete simulation and the source code for DC Motor Direction Control in Proteus but I would recommend you to design it on your own, it would be better for you. So, when you send the character C on serial terminal then the motor will rotate in clockwise direction and when the character sent through the serial terminal is A, the motor will rotate in counter clockwise direction and will stop when the character S is sent.

DC Motor Speed Control – DC Motor Projects

In this section of DC Motor Projects, I will provide you the list of the tutorials in which I have already controlled the speed of the DC motor using three different software e.g. Arduino, Matlab and NI LabVIEW. I have used the same hardware and Arduino source code in all of these tutorials. In case of Matlab and NI LabVIEW I have sent commands through the serial monitor towards Arduino and hence the whole system works. So, let’s get started with these DC Motor Projects:

1- DC Motor Speed Control using Arduino

DC motor control tutorials, DC motor control articles, Control DC motor articles, control DC motor articles, How to control DC motor, DC motor controls tutorials In DC Motor Speed Control using Arduino, I have actually used the concept of Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). For this purpose, I have used PWM pins EnA and EnB of L298 motor control to control the speed of the DC motor. PWM basically control the electronic pulse duration. When the state of the PWM pins of L298 motor controller is high, the output power will be supplied. I have controlled the speed of the DC motor by turning applied voltage on and off.

Duty cycle is the main factor while controlling the speed of the DC motor. When the duty cycle is long i.e signal is power is supplied for a long time, Dc motor will rotate at fast speed and vice versa. Usually the PWM duty cycle is less than 90%. I have also printed the executed commands on LCD for this project.

2- DC Motor Speed Control in Matlab

DC motor control tutorials, DC motor control articles, Control DC motor articles, control DC motor articles, How to control DC motor, DC motor controls tutorialsIn DC Motor Speed Control in Matlab, I have also created a GUI in Matlab having two extra buttons as compared to the GUI of DCMotor Direction Control in Matlab. One for continuously accelerating the speed of the DC motor and the other for continuously deaccelerating the speed of the same motor.

As we press any button, corresponding command will be sent through the serial port from Matlab to Arduino using serial communication. The logic created is pretty simple, the speed of the motor will accelerate continuously as many time we press the button and if the maximum speed is reached, motor maintains the same speed even we continue to enhance its speed. Same procedure will be followed to reduce the speed of the DC motor.

3- DC Motor Speed Control using NI LabVIEW
DC motor control tutorials, DC motor control articles, Control DC motor articles, control DC motor articles, How to control DC motor, DC motor controls tutorials

In DC Motor Speed Control in NI LabVIEW, I have have placed five different buttons on the front panel to control the direction as well as the speed of the DC motor. By pressing the Accelerate button again and again speed of the DC motor will increase in proportion to the number of times the buttons is pressed.

Similarly, by pressing Deaccelerate button again and again the speed of the DC motor will decrease in proportion to the number of times the button is pressed. First of all you need to press the Start button in order to start the serial communication between NI LabVIEW and Arduino. After pressing it you will be able to send the commands serially from NI LabVIEW towards Arduino.

4- DC Motor Speed Control with Arduino in Proteus
DC motor control tutorials, DC motor control articles, Control DC motor articles, control DC motor articles, How to control DC motor, DC motor controls tutorials

In the tutorial DC Motor Speed Control using Arduino in Proteus, I have controlled both the direction as well as the speed of the DC motor. For the direction control of DC motor the functionality remains the same as it was in DC Motor Direction Control with Arduino in Proteus but for the speed control, I have placed an Light Dependent Resistor (LDR) sensor in the simulation and depending on the value of the LDR sensor the speed DC motor will either increase or decrease.
