Introduction to Control Systems for Engineers
What you'll learn
- This course is designed for engineering students or engineers that want to learn more about the basics of control systems.
- In order to fully appreciate this class, you should have a background of dynamics and differential equations. But even with just some knowledge of physics you will do OK.
This course covers everything an Introduction to Controls Course should cover and much more. I will clearly explain to you control systems from the most basic ideas to where we currently are in research. I cover a huge range of topics including: system response, root-locus, bode plots, nyquist, state-space, digital control, optimal control. I use MATLAB in the course to help you learn!
Who this course is for:
- Engineering students or anyone interested in learning more about controls.
