Modern Control Systems ENSC 483 (4)

Analytical representation of the finite dimensional linear systems, analysis and design of linear feedback control systems based on the state space model, and state/output feedback. Topics include: review of the linear spaces and operators, mathematical modelling, state space representation and canonical forms, controllability, observability, realization of transfer function, and solution of the state equation. Applications include: stability concepts and definitions. Lyapunov's Direct Method, design of the state and output feedback control systems, eigenspectrum assignment, and state estimator design. Prerequisite: ENSC 383 or MSE 381, and a minimum of 80 units. Students with credit for MSE 483 may not take ENSC 483 for further credit.
