ME67500 - Multivariable Control System Design

Spring 2016

Days/Time: TTh / TBA
Credit Hours: 3

Learning Objective:
This course is designed to provide a graduate level introductory treatment of the theory and design of multivariable linear time-invariant (LTI) control systems.

Description:
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*

Topics Covered:
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*

Prerequisites:
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.

Applied/Theory: 50/50

Syllabus, Homework Assignments, Solutions, Chat Room, and Message Board.

Homework:
Assignments requiring three to four hours per week (60%).

Projects:
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*
