** Textbook **
*Modern Control Engineering*, Ogata, 5th Edition, Prentice Hall, 2010.

** Other helpful references **
*Feedback Control of Dynamic Systems*, by Franklin, Powell, and Emami-Naieni, 6th Ed., Prentice Hall, 2009.

*Modern Control Systems*, Dorf and Bishop, 9th Ed., Prentice Hall, 2011.

** Matrix theory resources **
*Matrix Computations*, Golub and Van Loan, The Johns Hopkins University Press.

*Introduction to Linear Algebra*, Gilbert Strang, 4th Ed., Wellesley-Cambridge Press, 2009.

*Linear Algebra and its Applications*, Gilbert Strang, 4th Ed., Cengage, 2006.

** Course outline **
Selected topics from Chapters 1-3 and 5-10 in the textbook.

The first half of the course is on

*modern control* that covers the fundamentals of state-feedback including topics such as matrix differential equations, controllability, state transformations, canonical forms, and control matrix design. The second half covers

*classical* control and output-feedback with topics including transfer functions,

*s*-plane analysis, stability criteria, PID controllers, root locus, controller design using op-amps, and compensation networks.

Required: EE23 and Math 70; OR graduate standing

I would assume a sound understanding of 'Linear Algebra' and 'Signal and Systems'. If concepts like vector spaces, LTI systems, convolution, Laplace, Fourier, and

*z*-transforms are unfamiliar, you should talk to me in advance.
