This class provides a comprehensive introduction to the theory and application of classical control techniques for the design and analysis of continuous-time control systems for mechanical engineering applications. Topics include development of dynamic models for mechanical, electrical, fluid-flow and process-control systems, introduction to Laplace transforms, stability analysis, time and frequency domain analysis techniques, and classical design methods. The class will use a series of applications that build in complexity throughout the semester to emphasize and reinforce the material.
