ME67500 - Multivariable Control System DesignSpring 2016
Days/Time: TTh / TBA
Credit Hours: 3
This course is designed to provide a graduate level introductory treatment of the theory and design of multivariable linear time-invariant (LTI) control systems.
The course provides students necessary background needed to understand and to apply the modern H-infinity control theory and mu-synthesis based robust control design techniques. The latest MATLAB robust control toolbox will be introduced and used to design controllers for specific applications. *Subject to change*
The state-space form and the transfer function matrix representation of multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) linear time-invariant (LTI) systems. Output feedback stabilization and all stabilizing LTI controller parameterization. Performance specifications. H? problem formulation and synthesis. Robust stability. Introduction to linear fractional transformations (LFT) and ?-tools for robust stability. Balanced realization and model reduction. *Subject to change*
Graduate level introductory control course (ME575, ECE602)...Laplace transforms, root locus, bode plots, loop shaping, stability theory, fundamentals of multivariable, Nyquist stability, and complex variable theory.
Syllabus, Homework Assignments, Solutions, Chat Room, and Message Board.
Assignments requiring three to four hours per week (60%).
Required - Updated 11/13/2011--Project (40%). Topics of the project are flexible and could be anything related to the materials covered in the course; examples like the application of robust control techniques to a particular system in your job or research. The project report should follow a journal paper format and will be graded based on innovations, theoretical soundness, completeness, practicality, and knowledge of the subject covered. *Subject to change*
No exams. **Subject to change*
