Course Name: Control systems

Course abstract

Course Objective: To provide a basic understanding of the concepts and techniques involved in designing control schemes for dynamic systems. Learning Outcomes: At the end of this course, one should • possess in-depth knowledge of concepts from classical control theory, • understand the concept of transfer function and use it for obtaining system response, • analyze dynamic systems for their stability and performance, and • design controllers (such as Proportional-Integral-Derivative) based on stability and performance requirements.
