The theory and application of control engineering will be discussed. System Modelling: Linear, nonlinear, time invariant, regulator and servomechanisms. Modelling system dynamics by transfer functions, block diagrams, state models. System Response: Transient response of second order systems. Steady state response, steady state errors, frequency response. Stability: simple stability tests, Routh Hurwitz, root locus, Bode and Nyquist. Methods used for design and compensation of control systems such as PID, Ziegler-Nichols tuning rules, lead and lag compensator will be examined. MATLAB software package will be used for control system design and analysis.
