Please note: This is not the official web page of the course,
hence it will not be updated. The official web
page of the course is developed on Carmen. Registered students will
have access from Carmen to all the additional information on the
course, including notes, homework sets, solutions, and syllabus.

Teaching Assistant:
Prerequisite(s): Fourier
transform, Laplace transform, Bode plots, impulse response and transfer
function of a linear time-invariant system. ECE 352.
Course description:
The course
provides introductory,
fundamental concepts in feedback control systems,
design and analysis techniques. Students will apply knowledge gained in
mathematics, physical sciences and engineering courses to derive
mathematical models of typical engineering systems to be controlled.
Students will learn how to identify, formulate and solve control
problems.
Topics: Modeling of mechanical and electro-mechanical systems. Principles of feedback. Open loop response, and time domain specifications. Stability and Routh criterion. Lead/lag compensator design using root locus. Bode plots and stability (gain and phase) margins. Lead/lag and PID compensator design using Bode plots. State variable approach, stability analysis and pole placement.
A note on prerequisites: Prerequisites are there for a
reason. I am not going to teach again Laplace transform, Bode
plots, or the method of partial fraction expansion. Also, familiarity
with complex variables and linear algebra is essential.
