In this study, a memristor based PD controller is designed and the performance of the controller is tested in the simulation model of the beam and ball (Ball and Beam) control system. In the proposed control structure, the position of the ball in the primary part called the outer loop is controlled by changing the angle of the beam. In the secondary part, called the inner loop, voltage is generated that will determine the proper position angle of the servo motor to adjust the position of the beam. In addition, the use of Memristor, which has attracted increasing attention in recent years, in the field of control systems has been tested. The simulation results show that the designed controller successfully performed reference tracking.
