Block and signal-flow diagrams, Mason's theorem. Laplace transform ,frequency response, Bode plots, root locus, Routh-Hurwitz array. Analysis of feedback control systems: open-loopand closed-loop gain, Nichols chart, Nyquist diagram, gain and phase margin. Continuous-time state-space analysis, state-variable feedback, canonical forms, observability and controllability. Second-order models, transient and steady-state performance. Emphasis on analog systems, although digital control systems will be discussed as time allows. Extensive use of MATLAB.
