MECE 3350U: Control Systems
Course Description
Analysis and synthesis of linear feedback systems by classical and state space techniques. Nonlinear and optimal control systems. Modelling of dynamic systems; analysis of stability, transient and steady state characteristics of dynamic systems; characteristics of feedback systems; design of PID control laws using frequency response methods and the root locus technique. Introduction to nonlinear and optimal control systems.
Students who successfully complete the course should have reliably demonstrated the ability to:
- carry out analysis and synthesis of linear feedback systems using classical and state space techniques
- model control systems in a wide variety of engineering scenarios
- perform stability and steadyâ€“state analyses of dynamic systems
- understand the characteristics of feedback control systems
- work with the PID controller laws and be able to design systems using frequency response methods and the root locus technique
- apply the theory established in the course to some common systems that incorporate active control systems
- use software and computer tools for the design and simulation of control systems
