Title: CONTROL SYSTEM ANALYSIS I
Coordinator: Eric Klavins, Assistant Professor, Electrical Engineering
Goals: For students to acquire the necessary tools for the analysis and design of linear feedback control systems.
At the end of this course students will be able to:
Textbook: N. Nise, Control Systems Engineering, Wiley, 4th Edition. 2003.
Reference text: None.
Prerequisites by Topic:
Course Structure: The class meets for two lectures a week (TuTh). There is weekly homework due; Grading is based on homework, one midterm exam, and a final exam. The grading percentages and nature of the exams are left to the discretion of the instructor.
Computer Resources: The course uses MATLAB for homework problems. The students complete an average of .3 hours of computer work per week.
(a) An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and
engineering. Lectures and homework deal with the application of
differential equations, linear algebra and
(c) An ability to design a system, component or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability and sustainability. Students are required to apply the skills acquired in this course to design control systems to meet specific performance requirements. (H)
(e) An ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems. Some of the homework assignments require students to evaluate different design approaches to reach an acceptable design. (H)
(k) An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineerng tools necessary for engineering practice. Students use Matlab and the Associated Control System Toolbox to analyze and design control systems. (M)
