Control Systems and Mechatronics

Course Code: ELIC 353

Academic Year: 2020-2021

After a thorough review of basic differential equations and their solutions using the Laplace transform, the modelling of physical systems is pursued methodically. This leads to the development of transfer functions, block diagrams and the concepts of feedback, sensitivity, stability, time and frequency response and transient response of systems. The course concludes with frequency-response and root-locus analysis and design. Simulation of systems is emphasized throughout the course. The laboratory component includes motion control hardware experiments and makes extensive use of MATLAB and SIMULINK.
