ELEC 443 Linear Control Systems
Introduction to linear systems and feedback control. Analysis is done in both the time and frequency domains. Topics include time-domain specifications of second-order systems, PID control, steady-state error and disturbance rejection, root locus analysis, stability analysis using the Routh-Hurwitz criterion and the Nyquist criterion, and 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.
