Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Justify the use of feedback as opposed to open loop control.
  • Formulate the fundamental problem of feedback design.
  • Derive the describing equations for simple dynamic systems and place a model in transfer function or state space format.
  • Sketch the root locus of a transfer function and use the root locus technique for different parameters.
  • Generated a root locus using computer-aided control system design tools.
  • Relate pole zero locations of a system transfer function to time domain behaviour such as overshoot, steady state error, settling time and rise time.
  • Design a classical PID controller and analyze the effect of each controller mode on the closed loop dynamic response.
  • Implement anti-windup and bumpless transfer schemes as well as derivative filtering.
  • Use the Bode and Nyquist diagrams for compensator design, stability analysis and sensitivity analysis via the frequency response.
  • Describe the effects of dead time on the Bode and Nyquist diagrams.
  • Design a state feedback controller using pole placement methods.
  • Design a full order and reduced order observer for a given model.
  • Solve the linear quadratic regulator problem to design a state space controller.
  • Use computer aided design tools to help design control systems.
