Course Description

Modeling and analysis of linear continuous systems in time and frequency domains. Fundamentals of single-input-single-output control system design.

Topics

  • Equations of motion of mechanical and electrical systems
  • Block diagram representation of control systems
  • Time response of first- and second-order systems
  • System stability
  • Construction of PID, Lead/Lag controllers via root locus
  • Frequency response through Bode and Nyquist analysis
  • Construction of PID, Lead/Lag controllers via frequency response

Learning Outcomes

The student, upon successful completion of this course, will be able to:

  1. Construct a mathematical model of a dynamic system that includes a control system.
  2. Simplify mathematical models to linear, time-invariant systems through linearization and/or block diagram reduction.
  3. Use time domain performance criteria to design single-input, single-output control systems that achieve specified time response, accuracy, and stability requirements.
  4. Construct and use frequency response tools to design single-input, single-output control systems that achieve specified time response and stability requirements.
  5. Use MATLAB to design, simulate, and analyze the response of controlled dynamic systems.
