Fundamentals of feedback control with emphasis on classical techniques and an introduction to state space methods. Topics include the following: frequency domain modeling and state space modeling of dynamical systems; feedback control system concepts and components; control system performance specifications such as stability, transient response, and steady state error; analytical and graphical methods for analysis and design - root locus, Bode plot, Nyquist criterion; design and implementation of proportional, proportional-derivative, proportional-integral-derivative, lead, lag, and lead-lag controllers. Laboratory work will include implementation and evaluation of various controllers on real systems for comparison with analytical models. Extensive use of computer aided analysis and design software. 3 hrs. lec., 3 hrs. lab.
