Automatic Control

Automatic Control

The objective of this course is to introduce theoretical and practical background of control systems. This course will present students the basis of linear dynamic systems, modelling and control principles. Besides, it is aimed to deliver the details of the first, second and higher order systems, transient and steady state responses, performance criteria, stability analysis and steady state errors. It also introduces the students Root-Locus Techniques and use of these techniques to design PID controller and phase compensators. Practical controller design and PID tuning issues together with typical implementation problems are also tackled. An introduction to frequency response techniques including sketching Bode diagrams and Nyquist plots, and their use in stability analyses are also presented.
