Modeling of electrical circuits
3 4 Important remarks on models A Brief Control History
1788: James Watt’s fly-ball governor
Watt’ fly- Modeling is the most important and difficult task

No mathematical model exactly represents a
physical system. Mechanical feedback control of steam supply to an engine
Mechanical Do not confuse models with physical systems!
In this course, we may use the term “system” to
mean a mathematical model.
