PLC is widely used in industrial control application. For this reason, PLC education has an important place in the content of universities and it is explained in different engineering department.

In this paper, AC motor speed control by using PLC experimental setup is designed and implemented. Through this experimental setup, students can experience and use of the encoder, 3-phase AC motor and PID control algorithm. Besides, this experimental setup helps students to develop their real time engineering skill and experience in departments of universities such as electrical-electronics, mechatronics, control and automation engineering.
