Introductory course in control theory: system modeling, simulation, analysis and controller design. Description of linear, time-invariant, continuous time systems, differential equations, transfer function representation, block diagrams and signal flows. System dynamic properties in time and frequency domains, performance specifications. Basic properties of feedback. Stability analysis: Routh-Hurwitz criterion, Root Locus method, Bode gain and phase margins, Nyquist criterion. Classical controller design in time and frequency domain: lead, lag, lead-lag compensation, rate feedback, PID controller. Laboratory work consists of experiments with a DSP-based, computer-controlled servomotor positioning system, and MATLAB and Simulink assignments, reinforcing analytical concepts and design procedures.
