Textbook:Feedback Control Systems, 5/E by Charles L. Phillips and John Parr
Course Description:
Modeling, analysis, and design of analog and digital linear control systems using time and frequency domain techniques. Topics include feedback control system characteristics performance analysis and stability, Ztransforms, and controller design.
Course Objectives:

Provide students with a background in the modeling, analysis, and design of both analog and digital control systems

Offer exposure to realworld consideration via cumulative case study examples

Lay the foundation for the potential pursuit of more advanced topics in control theory
