is concerned with the development of techniques for modeling linear dynamicsystems with feedback and analyzing their performance and stability. The topics to be included are as follows:
Definition of feedback control system; A brief history;Several examples: Appetite control, flush toilet, DC servo motor speed control;Open- and closed-loop control systems;Computer controlled systems.
Differential and algebraic equations (DAEs);Laplace transformation and transfer Functions;Block diagram and its manipulation;Closed-loop transfer functions;Signal-Flow Graph and Mason’s Direct Rule.Introduction to Matlab/Simulink
Time response analysis.
Typical input signals and specifications
Evaluation of system response
: poles and zeros and system response; the characteristic equation;first-order system responses and specifications;
Second order system responses
: general second-order system; natural frequency; damping ratio;Transient performance specifications for second-order systems.
