Course Learning Outcome
The objective of this course is to provide experience with both breadth and depth in designing, constructing, and debugging real-time control systems, with emphasis on understanding the use and limits of theoretical controls design methods in practical environments.
Automatic Controls Laboratory
E C E 577
( 4 Credits )
Control theory is reduced to engineering practice through the analysis and design of actual systems in the laboratory. Experiments are conducted with modern servo systems using both analog and digital control. Systems identification and modern controls design are applied to motion and torque control.
