Teaching control systems to the under graduate engineering students is a tough job without active learning. The innovation in teaching control systems is simple but quiet interesting. A role play was conducted to make the learners to understand the difference between the open loop and closed loop systems. The analogy of saturation was compared with the saturation of torque speed characteristic of motor. The effect of Positive feedback also demonstrated to the learners. Finally a simple DC motor was constructed by the learners and was successfully rotated by a group of leaners. The author finds easy to teach the control systems with these types of active learning.
