Course Content

Example modeling of liquid, economic, biological, chemical processes. Distributed parameter systems and their lumped parameter approximations. Models and effects of actuators and measurement devices. Control modes and architectures: on-off, proportional, integral, derivative (PID) control modes. PID design methods: direct design, Intemal Model Control (IMC) based design, Zygler-Nichols closed-loop design. Control loop architectures: single loop, cascade, disturbance feedforward, feedforward-feedback, and IMC. Pure time-delay in the control loop: modeling, stability effects and compensation methods.
