New ME Professional Elective for Fall 2018
EMEC 491-002 System Dynamics and Control (CRN: 25352)
Instructor: Dr. Mark Jankauski
Tentative Time: MWF 11:00-11:50
This course is intended to teach the fundamental basis of system dynamics and control. Students will learn how to model mechanical systems which span multiple physical domains. The state-space formulation will be introduced, and the time/frequency domain response of systems will be analyzed. Basic concepts of single-input-single-output (SISO) continuous-time control will be presented, including Root-Locus analysis and Nyquist diagrams . Students will practical gain experience simulating system responses and evaluating controller performance using MATLAB. A lab component will be included to reinforce course concepts.
