Course Name: Control System Design

Course abstract

The course exposes students to control design for continuous-time linear time-invariant (LTI) systems. The course focuses primarily on using Laplace and frequency-domain techniques. It discusses design of 1-degree of freedom (i.e., single controller) and 2-degree of freedom control systems for Single Input-Single Output (SISO) plants, using a range of tools including Nyquist plots, Bode plots, Evans plots (root locus), and Nichols plots. It also discusses the fundamental limits associated with control design and the related trade-offs that need to be made during design.
