Knowledge of Signals and Systems and of Laplace transform.

This module aims to provide knowledge of several automatic control systems structures, to develop competences in the design of classical control systems using time invariant linear continuous systems and to analyse stability and performance.

Introd. to control systems. Time-domain analysis, in open and closed loop: transient response, steady state error, stability (Routh/Nyquist). Controller design, analysis of control systems based on root locus, frequency design, Bode Diagram. Stability criterion.
PID control: methods of Ziegler-Nichols, pole-placement, etc. Techniques of project and compensation. Disturbances and Delay. Digital PID

Evaluation Methodology
Written open-book examination during regular examination seasons(75%) and Practical assignments (25%).
