This course provides an introduction to the analysis and design of control systems. The objective of the course is to provide the student with a basic understanding of how to model a dynamical system, how to linearize it and how to control it based on a linear model. State-space design based on pole-placement will be emphasized. Design and sensitivity analysis via root-locus will be studied. Students will design controllers through P, PI, PID, phase-lead, and phase-lag filters. Concepts of sensitivity and robustness will be studied in the frequency domain, including Bode and Nyquist plots. Students will learn how to transform linear dynamical systems between state-space and frequency domains, and explore conditions for stability in each domain. Concepts of robust control, including tradeoffs between sensitivity and performance, will be emphasized throughout. Applications will range across electrical, mechanical, chemical, biomedical, and biological systems.
