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.
  • The Routh-Hurwitz Criterion. PID controllers.
  • 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.

Mathematical analysis.
