Smoothly speed range changing, easily speed controlling, and swiftly dynamic response for load torque changing are the main merits which are delivered by direct current (DC) motors. They are also distinguished by their versatility. All these characteristics make the DC motors suitable candidates for various applications. An accurate high-speed control with a good dynamic response, would be of demand for many applications of the DC motors. Controlling the speed of motors using conventional systems is one of the most important method that is adopted and it can be more efficient when used with electronic power devices to control the output voltage. Hence, this paper introduces an efficient proportional integral (PI) speed controller for DC motor fed by direct current-direct current (DC-DC) convertor, which is switched by pulse-width modulation technique. MATLAB/Simulink environment is used to build the whole system. Two operation scenarios have been conducted including constant load with variable speed and variable load with constant speed.
