This course provides an introduction to the analysis of control systems. The main focus will be on techniques of classical control theory, including root-locus, Bode, and Nyquist plots. Students will learn how to transform linear dynamical systems between state-space and frequency domains, and explore conditions for stability in each domain. Students will design controllers through P, PI, PID, phase-lead, and phase-lag filters. Concepts of robust control, including tradeoffs between sensitivity and performance, will be emphasized throughout. A brief introduction will be made to optimal control and digital control. Applications will range across electrical, mechanical, chemical, biomedical, and biological systems.
You will need
