4 units – Winter Quarter
Lecture: 3 hours
Laboratory: 3 hours
Prerequisite: EEC 157A
Control system optimization and compensation techniques, digital control theory. Laboratory includes Servo system experiments and computer simulation studies.
Expanded Course Description:
Matlab (with the Control System Toolbox) is used for control system design and simulation.
Engineering Design Statement:
This course focuses on design in the laboratory and in the homework. The problems are relatively unspecified and the student is challenged to complete the problem specifications, propose a design strategy and complete the iterative steps required to select the “best” set of parameters. The student is required to continually use computer-aided design software and for two systems to actually verify the results of the desing using a constructed system with actual components.
Relationship to Outcomes:
