EML 5311 Control Theory Spring 2007 Instructor Name Warren Dixon Room 312 MAE A Email wdixon ufl edu Phone 352 846 1463 O ce Hours Monday open door 8 30 9 30 Homework and Exams 25 25 Each exam x3 exams Projects and homework A written exam will be given after spring break Includes small projects and homework and a large project Prerequisites This course provides a graduate level introduction to control theory which may be taken immediately following a standard course of undergraduate level control theory The students are expected to understand the basics of transfer functions Bode plots poles and zeros feedback and feedforward state space modeling PID and a fundamental knowledge of dynamics Course Description This course will introduce students to the complexities of feedback control for dynamical systems The material will focus on characteristics found in most practical systems that do not fall within the framework of linear time invariant LTI single input single output SISO systems that are covered in undergraduate level control theory Specifically the discussions will investigate the e ects of multivariable dynamics and nonlinear dynamics on the performance and stability of the closed loop system The course will investigate stability properties e ects of feedback performance conditions constraints estimating linearized dynamics and modeling Objectives The fundamental objective is a deeper appreciation for controls as applied to realistic systems Specifically students will understand the challenges that are involved in a rigorous design of a controller and any associated claims as to the properties of the resulting closed loop system The material will cover both synthesis and analysis of such systems with particular emphasis on conceptual understanding of the issues causing di culty Students must design controllers and analyze systems in such a way that a simple trial and error approach will not be su cient but rather a methodical treatment of the dynamics will
