Student Learning Outcomes

1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to analyze discrete-time control systems. a) Discretize a continuous-time system to obtain either a pulse transfer function model or a state-space model. b) Apply z-transform methods to analyze system stability and transient and steady-state behavior.
2. Analyze, design, and test discrete-time control systems using the latest tools, techniques, and skills. a) Use MATLAB/Simulink to analyze, design, and test control systems. b) Design, build, and test digital controllers for the MS-150 Modular Servo System (Feedback, Inc.).
3. Design discrete-time control systems based on their knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering. a) Design discrete-time control systems using root-locus and frequency-response methods. b) Design discrete-time control systems using pole placement via state-feedback (with and without state estimation).
4. Maintain a professional laboratory notebook.
