Learning Outcomes
Upon the successful completion of this course a student will be able to: a) transform the description of a linear, time-invariant, multivariable system to all possible descriptions (transfer function matrix, state space description etc. b) calculate and plot the time response of a state space system, c) transform of a given state space system to various canonical forms, d) design the block diagram and signal flow of a system described by state space equations, e) check system properties such as controllability , stabilizability, observability, and detectability, f) calculate and design a compensator capable to place the poles of the system to a specific region, g) calculate and design an optimal controller, h) calculate and design a system observer, i) create a controller that will use an oberver for the estimation of the states, j) to apply the separation principle.
