Course: ECE 480L. Fundamentals of Control Systems Lab (1)
Prerequisite: ECE 350. Corequisite: ECE 480. As an accompaniment to the 3-unit course Fundamentals of Control Systems (ECE 480), this laboratory provides experiments to verify theoretical studies and use their applications in the design of a control system with given specifications. The experiments are mainly electrical circuits with actual measurements and simulations and design applications using system response, Routh-Hurwitz stability criterion, system identification, steady state error, root-locus, Nyquist criterion and the effects of disturbance. Use of MATLAB, Simulink and PSPICE is emphasized for analysis and design. Available for graduate credit. 3-hours lab per week.
