Course Content (Syllabus)
Introduction to the concepts of systems signals and Automatic Control, (brief historical review, basic structure of feedback control, examples) - Mathematical concepts and tools for the study of continuous and discrete time signals and systems (Laplace transform, z-transform, applications, block diagrams and signal flow graphs) - Classification of signals and systems. Continuous and discrete time signals and systems - Time invariance, linearity - Classical analysis of systems and control in the time and frequency domains - Linear time invariant single-input, single-output systems described by ordinary, linear diferential equations - Input output relation and the transfer function description of a linear time invariant system - Free forced and total response of systems in the time domain - Stability of linear time invariant systems and algebraic stability criteria - Routh test for stability - Frequency response of linear time invariant systems - Closed loop systems - Root locus - Nyquist stability Criterion - Stabilizability and Stabilization of systems via precompensation and output feedback - Synthesis of controlers and parametrisation of stabilising controlers.
