ELEC820 - 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. Prerequisites: ELEC586 Motors and Controls; MATH 620 Applied Differential Equations I. Day Course.
