Description**

Concepts of modeling, and analysis of
systems in time and frequency domains, feedback and feed forward
controllers, stability criteria, design of controllers. Prerequisite: EE 2783, MATH 3503 and APSC
1023 or ME 1113

**Course
Content**

- Modeling of physical systems: block
diagram representation, and reduction
- Mathematical model of systems:
differential equation, state-space, transfer
function
- Analysis in the time and frequency domain:
system specifications
- Stability: definition, Routh Hurwitz
criterion
- Open and closed loop system: stability,
sensitivity, tracking and disturbance
rejection
- Feedforward and feedback control
structures
- Typical feedback controllers such as
proportional (P), proportional and integral (PI), proportional,
integral and derivative (PID), variants of PID, lead and lag
compensators, state-feedback controller and state-feedback with
integral action.
- Close loop frequency response and its
relationship to open loop frequency response: Nyquist
criterion.
- Principles of design of control system in
the time and frequency domain
