20L708Q Automatic Control Theory

(3 Credits,48 Hours;Course Category: Specialty Basic Course ;Specialty: Mechanical and related professions;Prerequisite: Calculus,C Language, Circuit basis)
Automatic Control Theory is a compulsory course for students majoring in mechanical, electrical and related professions. In this course, classical concepts of feedback system analysis and associated compensation techniques are presented: including transfer functions; root locus method; Routh stability analysis; frequency response methods, including Bode and Nyquist; steady-state error for standard test signals; PID controllers. Particularly, the root locus, Bode diagram and Nyquist criterion are used as determinants of stability.
Through learning this course, students can learn more about the mechanism of automatic control systems, controller parameters on system performance as well as a variety of automatic control systems analysis and design methods.
