ELEC 377: Digital Control Systems

Fall Semester 2006


This course will provide the fundamentals for the analysis and design of computer-
controlled systems, including state-space models, sampling continuous-time models,
stability analysis of continuous and discrete-time systems, controller design using pole
assignment, and optimal control. Through the study of this course, the students will be
able to understand and design practically useful computer-controlled systems to improve
productivity and quality.
