ELEC 443 Linear Control Systems
Introduction to linear systems and feedback control. Topics include introduction to automatic control, overview of Laplace transformation, linear models of dynamic systems, time-domain specifications of first and second order systems, stability analysis using Routh-Hurwitz criterion, steady-state error and disturbance rejection, PID control, stability analysis and linear controller design using root locus method, Nyquist criterion, and Bode plots, and introduction to state-space analysis. These methods are applied and tested using software such as MATLAB/Simulink, and laboratory experiments.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is housed in Walter Light Hall which provides over 5,400 square meters of modern research, teaching and classroom facilities. The building is linked to Goodwin Hall which houses the School of Computing. Additional space for undergraduate laboratories and research is located in Beamish-Munro Hall.
All courses except ELEC 898 , ELEC 899 and ELEC 999 are 3.0 credit units. Not all courses are offered every year.
