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.
