ECE 516 Systems Control Engineering
3 Credit Hours
We will cover modern control theory (time domain analysis) for linear systems - including canonical state space representations (controller canonical, observer canonical, etc.), linearization, multi-input multi-outputs systems (including MFDs), and minimal state representations, controllers/observers, and controllability/observability, state transition matrix, Cayley-Hamilton, eigenvalues/eigenvectors, and similarity transformations, with introductions to digital, time-varying and optimal control systems. We will also cover various fundamental linear algebra techniques.
Proficiency in modeling and design of linear control systems using time-domain analytic methods (i.e., modern control theory)
Midterm and final exams, class project, homework (up to 8)
