The course provides the basic methodologies for modeling, analysis and controller design for continuous-time linear time-invariant systems.
Frequency domain models of Linear Systems: Laplace Transform, Transfer Function, Block diagrams.
Time domain models of Linear Systems:State space representation. BIBO stability.
Control specifications for transient and steady-state responses. Polynomial and sinusoidal disturbances rejection.

Analysis and controller design using the root locus.
Analysis and controller design using the eigenvalues assignment: controllability, observability, the separation principle.
Reference inputs in state space representations.
Controller design using MATLAB.
Advanced topics in control theory.
