1. Course Description & Goals
This class focuses on the design of linear feedback control systems. The
process of analyzing and designing feedback control systems starting from a
physical model of the system is discussed. The physical model is then
expressed in terms of the associated transfer function. The systems under
consideration range from cruise control of automobiles to control of
satellites, aircraft, helicopters, and biological systems.
2. Target Students
Sophomore and Junior students of the School of Integrated Technology
3. Texts & References
Feedback Control of Dynamic Systems (Franklin, Powell, Emami-Naeini)
4. Course Requirements
This class requires problem sets, a midterm exam, and a final exam.
5. Grading Policy
Problem sets (30%), Midterm exam (30%), Final exam (40%)
