The voltage control system of a DC generator may suffer from high frequency oscillations without offset or low frequency oscillation with offset. A PID controller can eliminate both these errors. In the present paper, the voltage control system of a DC generator using a PLC based PID controller has been designed. Operation of PLC as a continuous controller has been described and the load characteristic of DC generator with and without controller have been determined experimentally and reported in this paper.
