  • Offered: Winter
  • Prerequisite: ET 212, ET 360 and MA 161.

Students are introduced to the fundamentals of automatic control systems including analysis and design. Classical control system topics include system response and performance characteristics, stability criteria and analysis, dominant pole approximation, phase and PID compensator design. MATLAB and SIMULINK are used to aid in the analysis and design of control systems.  Calculus-based methods are used to aid the students understanding of PID control systems. The laboratory work introduces modern techniques needed for the design and implementation of automatic control systems.
