First class is on Tuesday January 11th 2005 in
Towne 311 from .
I will be out of town on Thursday January 13th, so there will be no course lecture. The TAs will give a
Matlab tutorial instead. If you are familiar with Matlab, you don't have to come.
This course is an introduction to analysis and design of feedback control
systems, including classical control theory in the time and frequency
domain. Modeling of physical, biological and information systems using
linear and nonlinear differential equations. Stability and performance of
interconnected systems, including use of block diagrams, Bode plots, Nyquist criterion. Robustness
and uncertainty management in feedback systems.
Basic course on ordinary differential equations and linear algebra. For systems engineering students, knowledge of ESE 210 (SYS 200) is required.
