Introduction to the design of feedback compensation to improve the transient and steady-state performance of systems. Course covers modeling techniques, root locus analysis and design, Nyquist criterion, and frequency domain compensation.
These courses form the basis of control system design. They build on the general system background introduced in ECE 3704 and develop in detail the area of system analysis concerned with control systems.
