To present a clear exposition of the classical methods of control engineering, physical system
modeling, and basic principles of frequency and time domain design techniques.
To teach the practical control system design with realistic system specifications.
To provide knowledge of state variable models and fundamental notions of state feedback
Expected Outcome:
1. Calculate the transfer function from the block diagram
2. Determine the stability of linear systems
3. Design PID controllers from design specifications
4. Apply frequency domain methods to determine stability
5. Formulate state-space models
