Course description and aims

This course focuses on modeling of a variety of electric circuits and vibration systems, and analysis techniques of linear time-invariant systems. It covers the fundamentals of linear control theory. The topics include transfer function derivation of dynamic models and analytical techniques of system characteristics using the transfer functions, definition of system stability, some stability criterions, design methods of feedback control systems.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Derive transfer functions of linear time-invariant systems from their dynamic models.
2) Have an understanding of analytical techniques using block diagram, vector locus and bode diagram, and on the basis of them, examine system characteristics expressed as transfer functions.
3) Explain the definition of stability and confirm system stability.
4) Have an understanding of feedback control systems and their design methods based on classical control systems and deign control systems that satisfy design specifications
