Session Spring Semester 2017
Course Title Advanced Control Systems I
Course Code ME-812
Credit Hours 3-0
Pre-Requisutes Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Dynamics, Control Systems
Course Objectives This course on control systems aims to introduce the students to the techniques on analyzing and controlling the dynamics of linear systems. Initial part of this course covers the fundamental aspect related to the dynamics of the linear systems that also includes various stability determining techniques. It focusses on the the formulation of state-space based governing mathematical models for dynamics of various engineering systems. In the later part, it addresses the foundation for devising various advanced modern control techniques to tackle a wide variety of relevant engineering problems.
