Automatic Control

ABOUT THE COURSE:

Automatic Control is the theory used in various applications, for example, manufacturing of a product, refrigeration and air conditioners, aircraft, missile, satellite launching, etc. The study of a dedicated course is required to understand the fundamental and advance concepts of automatic controls for engineers and designers. This course is of basic level. It introduces design and modelling of a control system, theory of transfer functions, poles, zeros, block diagram algebra, transient response analysis of first and second order systems, stability and Routh’s criteria, error analysis, PID control, root locus techniques, compensation techniques, introduction to the state space method and application of MATLAB in automatic control.

INTENDED AUDIENCE:
UG students of Mechanical, Electrical, Automobile, Production, Aerospace, Civil Engineering and equivalent.
