Unformatted text preview: EE 350 CONTINUOUS-TIME LINEAR SYSTEMS Fall 2007 1. Prerequisites: MATH 220, MATH 250 (or MATH 251) and EE 210 (a grade of C or better is required). 2. Purpose: Through an emphasis on problem solving, this course provides students with a working knowledge of linear systems and how they interact with continuous-time signals. The skills and knowledge gained in this course are essential to the analysis and design of systems in diverse technical areas such as communications (television, radio, cellular telephone), signal processing (radar, sonar, speech processing, audio), and automatic control (industrial process control, automotive cruise control, airplane flight control). This course provides the foundation for several technical electives including: EE 311 Electronic Circuit Design II EE 412 Optical Fiber Communications EE 365 Energy Conversion EE 423 Power Electronics EE 367 Introduction to Communications Systems EE 428 Linear Control Systems 3. Objectives: Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to: A. Classify signals and systems based upon their properties, and, in particular, understand the implications when a system is linear, time-invariant, and causal. B. Model active and passive circuits using ordinary differential equations. C. Solve first-order and second-order ordinary differential equations using the classical solution method. D. Represent a system as a signal, and find the response of that system to an arbitrary input using convolution. E. Use Fourier series and Fourier transform methods to determine the frequency domain representation of signals and systems, and apply these techniques to the analysis of filters and amplitude-modulated communication systems. F. Apply Laplace transform techniques to solve ordinary differential equations, model active and passive circuits, and analyze feedback control systems. G. Understand the relationship between the ordinary differential equation, impulse response function, fre- quency response function, and transfer function description of a system. H. Use MATLAB to analyze continuous-time signals and systems. 4. Organization: EE 350 is taught in one lecture section (sections 1-6, 11:15 am, 22 Deike). In addition, each section meets once a week for either a recitation or laboratory exercise. Recitations reinforce concepts learned in lecture through problem solving. The four laboratory exercises introduce MATLAB and demonstrate the application of linear system concepts to engineering systems.application of linear system concepts to engineering systems....
