Synopsis

Instruction on the basics of automatic control design, including anaysis and design techniques (with MATLAB/SIMULINK). Assumes students have the ability to form and use classical and state-space models of linear systems, can calculate their responses in time and frequency domain, and have experience in using MATLAB. Control system design through root-locus, frequency response, direct pole-placement, and state estimation, with concepts of linear systems, controllability, and observability. Introductions to robust stability, PID control design, digital systems, and optimal control design methods will also be provided.
