MER 470 - Dynamic Modeling and Control
(3 cr.) This course covers dynamic modeling and control of linear systems. It includes an overview of classical control theory as the foundation for control applications in electrical, mechanical and aeronautical systems. Topics include system modeling using Laplace transform, frequency domain and state variable methods. Mathematical models are developed for electrical, mechanical, aeronautical, chemical and other physical control systems. Control systems analysis and design techniques are studied within the context of how each system is physically controlled in practice. Laboratory exercises include feedback design and system identification. Computer design exercises include dynamic modeling and control of various engineering systems.
