Provides a working knowledge of the analysis and design of linear automatic control systems using classical methods. Introduces state space techniques; dynamic models of mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and other systems; transfer functions; block diagrams; stability of linear systems, and Nyquist criterion; frequency response methods of feedback systems design and Bode diagram; Root locus method; System design to satisfy specifications; PID controllers; compensation using Bode plots and the root locus. Powerful software is used for system design. Cross-listed as MAE 6610.
