VE460 – Control Systems Analysis and Design


Instructor: Jun Zhang

Instructors (Faculty):

Credits: 3 credits

Pre-requisites: Ve215 Intro to Circuits and Ve216 Signals and Systems

Description:

Ve460 is an entry level undergraduate course on feedback control. It covers most of the fundamental topics in classical control, including block diagram simplification, stability, time-domain response, root locus, and frequency-domain techniques. We discuss many control analysis and design techniques in classroom, and the students can further sharpen their skills through carefully selected homework assignments. The students will learn basic knowledge and gain engineering intuitions in automatic control so that in future career when they face the challenge from feedback control, they are well prepared and can get the job done promptly.

Course Topics:

  1. Introductionto control
  2. Review of Laplace transform
  3. Block diagrams and signal flow graphs
  4. Modeling of systems
  5. Stability
  6. Time-domain response
  7. Root locus
  8. Frequency-domain analysis
  9. Control design techniques
