|Catalog Data||ECEN 4638 (2). Control Systems Laboratory. Control system design and analysis with experience both in real hardware and computer simulation. Emphasis is placed on the entire control system design cycle – modeling the system, synthesizing a controller, conducting simulations, analyzing the design to suggest modifications and improvements, implementing the design for actual testing.|
|Credits and Design||2 credit hours: 4 hours of laboratory per week. Elective course.|
ECEN 3300, Linear Systems|
APPM 2360, Linear Algebra and Differential Equations
|Corequisite(s)||ECEN 4138, Control Systems Analysis|
|Textbook||LabView manual to be determined; Franklin, Powell, Emani-Naeini, Feedback Control of Dynamic Systems, Addison Wesley 4e, 2002.|
|Course Objectives||This is a companion to ECEN 4138, Control Systems Analysis, which covers the mathematical aspects of control theory. This laboratory course covers the “real-world” practical issues involved in actual implementation of complex control systems. It leads students through the actual control system design cycle.|
