2017 - 2018 Catalog Description:  Analysis, design, and synthesis of linear feedback control systems. Mathematical modeling and performance evaluation; state variables; frequency domain analysis and design methodologies. Applications and utilization of Matlab in analysis and design. (3 Units)

Prerequisites:  ECE 124 - Signals and Systems

Course Objectives:  This course is designed to provide students with a broad background in classical and modern control theory, analysis, and design. The course begins with a review of Laplace Transforms, and uses the mathematical basis to develop models of electromechanical systems. After students learn about transient and steady-state response analysis, the Root-Locus and Frequency-Response methods are used for systems analysis and design of real world problems. Finally, students will design an analog controller and simulate it in MATLAB/SIMULINK. Computer aided analysis and design are emphasized with numerous applications using standard industrial tools throughout the course, as MATLAB/SIMULINK will be used to analyze and design feedback control loops, investigate frequency response anaylsis, and achieve design specifications of overshoot, settling time, steady state errors, and bandwith using Bode plots and Root Loci design.

The material of this course is applicable to a broad spectrum of systems in manufacturing, electronics, communication, energy and power, aerospace, mechanical engineering, etc. The nature of the material makes it a basic engineering tool for analysis and design.

Learning Outcomes:
    1.  Gain depth in understanding feedback control systems, their applications, and design.
    2.  Broaden knowledge in systems engineering theory and applications.
    3.  Enhance competence in applying mathematics and physics concepts.
    4.  Enhance the use of software and engineering design tools.
    5.  Gain an appreciation for life-long learning and knowledge of contemporary issues.
    6.  Demonstrate an ability to work independently.
