Introductory course for Biomedical Engineers: system modeling, simulation, analysis and classical-controller designs of linear, time-invariant, continuous time systems. System dynamic properties in time and frequency domains, performance specifications and basic properties of feedback are investigated. Stability analysis is reinforced through Routh-Hurwitz criterion, Root-Locus method, Bode plots, and Nyquist criteria. Concept of Bio-Robotics is introduced, and exposure to basics of state-space representation and feedback. Key control concepts are experienced through laboratory experiments using modular servo-system with open architecture, fully integrated with MATLab and Simulink; use of simulation tools; and solving design problems.
