Sampling and data reconstruction. Z-transforms and state variable descriptions of discrete-time systems. Linear quadratic optimal control and state estimation. Quantization and other nonlinearities. Real-time control systems. Digital feedback control systems. Constructing discrete-time mathematical model system. Analysis of system behavior using discrete-time model and evaluation of the system performance. Discrete controller design techniques such as root locus, frequency response, and state space techniques. Evaluation and testing of system performance using digital simulations. (Also listed as AE 5380 and ME 5380).
The course offerings provide the student with an opportunity to broaden as well as to intensify his or her knowledge in a number of areas of electrical engineering. The student, with the aid of a faculty adviser, may plan a program in any one of a number of fields of specialization within electrical engineering or from the offerings of related departments in science and engineering.
