Unformatted text preview: ME 8281 Advanced Control Systems Design Department of Mechanical Engineering University of Minnesota Spring 2012 Instructor: Perry Li Office: MechE 309 Email: perry-li@umn.edu Tel: 612-626-7815 Class schedule:WF 10:10-12:00 Office Hours: Tu 2:00-3:00pm (tentative) talk to me immediately after class, or by appointment. Course URL: http://www.me.umn.edu/education/courses/me8281/ Overview This is a first graduate level course on control systems with an emphasis on controller design. Prerequisite materials assumed are generally covered in an undergraduate level control systems e.g. ME5281 at the University of Minnesota which covers classical SISO control, and an introduction to states space control concept. About 3/4 of the course will deal mainly with linear systems (or linearized systems), and the rest of the class will be concerned with introduction of some nonlinear control system design techniques. In class and homework examples will be taken from various application domains and research projects. We will rely heavily on MATLAB for analysis, design and simulations of these systems. Homework assignments will consist of theory (pen and paper) and design / simulation (using Matlab). There will a significant term project, and a final. Grading Homeworks - 50% Final - 30% Project - 20% Textbooks Goodwin, Graebe, Salgado, "Control System Design", Prentice Hall. 2001. We will not follow the book strictly, but will pick topics from the book for at home reading, examples, homeworks and discussion etc. Notes, course materials, and papers will be handed out or posted on the course website from time to time. Other recommended texts for reference are: Recommended Texts 1. Glad and Ljung, "Control Theory - Multivariable and Nonlinear methods" Taylor and Francis, 2000. fairly comprehensive, useful reference, but may approach the theory in a different way as in class. 1 2 c Perry Y.Li 2.
