Program Theoretıcal hours Practical hours Local credit ECTS credit
Undergraduate 3 0 3 6
Obligation : Elective
Prerequisite courses : ELE354
Concurrent courses : ELE405
Delivery modes : Face-to-Face
Learning and teaching strategies : Lecture, Question and Answer, Problem Solving, Other: This course must be taken together with ELE405 CONTROL SYSTEM DESIGN LABORATORY.
Course objective : This course is a continuation of "ELE 354 Control Systems" which basically considers "analysis" of control systems. In ELE 403, the objective is to treat systems and control issues from a design point of view. Both classical (root-locus, frequency domain, PID) and modern (state space, algebric design) methods for control system design are covered. Nonlinear systems and control of time delay systems are also considered.
Learning outcomes : A student who completes the course successfully is expected to 1. Understand the nature of a control problem, 2. Be aware of practical issues and physical limitations concerning control systems, 3. Be able to choose a suitable control technique for a given control problem, 4. Design and implement control systems, 5. Be acquired a suitable background to study more advanced control problems.
Course content : An overview of control systems and a quick review of some basic concepts and subjects such as transient response, steady-state response, sensitivity, disturbance/noise rejection, stability, root-locus. Control system design by root-locus and frequency response; lead, lag, lag-lead compensation. PID control and its tuning. Linear algebraic design: unity-feedback configuration, two degree of freedom and input/output feedback configuration. Control of time delay systems, Smith's predictor and Emulator Based Control. Design of control systems in state-space: state feedback, observers, reduced order obsevers, observer+state feedback, quadratic optimal control. Nonlinear control systems: common nonlinearities, describing function analysis, linearization and phase plane analysis, limit cycles.
