Course Features

Course Description

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Create lumped parameter models (expressed as ODEs) of simple dynamic systems in the electrical and mechanical energy domains
  • Make quantitative estimates of model parameters from experimental measurements
  • Obtain the time-domain response of linear systems to initial conditions and/or common forcing functions (specifically; impulse, step and ramp input) by both analytical and computational methods
  • Obtain the frequency-domain response of linear systems to sinusoidal inputs
  • Compensate the transient response of dynamic systems using feedback techniques
  • Design, implement and test an active control system to achieve a desired performance measure

Mastery of these topics will be assessed via homework, quizzes/exams, and lab assignments.
