ELEC4475 - Feedback and Control

The definition of an analog feedback control system will be the introduction of the course. The course proceeds with the time-domain and frequency-domain analysis of closed loop feedback control systems. The relationship between the time-domain and frequency-domain is discussed. The stability methods are explained. The course provides an introduction to the state-space method and an introduction to discrete control systems.  MATH2500, Differential Equations. Corequisite: ELEC4050, Motors & Control. 

Course Objectives

  1. Develop and use models of physical systems in forms suitable for use in the analysis and design of control systems.
  2. Analyze the time and frequency domain responses of first and second order systems to various inputs.
  3. Determine the stability of closed-loop control systems.
  4. Apply root locus and frequency response (Bode plot) techniques to analyze and design control systems.
  5. Demonstrate proficiency using application software and hardware for analysis and design of control systems.
  6. Demonstrate understanding of the Z-transform and digital control systems.                                                                                                 Updated Fall 2017
