A short half-day seminar covering the tuning and design of feedback controllers to meet transient specifications.
The seminar opens with a brief review of fundamental concepts, including linear differential equations and the Laplace transform. The behavior of classical linear first and second order systems in response to different input stimuli is examined in detail. The central theme of the course is control performance in the time domain and the next section shows how the root locus plot can be exploited to achieve this. The seminar goes on to describe PID controller operation and tuning. Also described are various practical issues which can arise when implementing controllers and how to solve them.
The seminar covers the following topics.
