Control systems are an integral part of modern society. Numerous applications are all around us: The rockets fire, and the space shuttle lifts off to earth orbit; in splashing cooling water, a metallic part is automatically machined; a selfguided vehicle delivering material to workstations in an aerospace assembly plant glides along the floor seeking its destination. These are just a few examples of the automatically controlled systems that we can create.
This course is comprised of the following sections
 In the first section the basic features, configuration, analysis and design objectives of control systems is considered. Furthermre students will see the Lapalce tranform of time functions and inverse laplace transform, Solution of the differential equations using laplace trnasform, Transfer function for linear time invariant electrical,translational mechanical systems, Analogous electrical and mechanical systems.
 In the second section students analyze the poles and zeros configuration to dertermine the time response of a control system,Transient response of the first order system,general response of second order system given the pole location,Damping ratio and natural frequency of a second order system, settling time , peak time, percent overshoot, and rise time for an underdamped secondorder system.
 In the third section students get the under standing of block diagram reduction of multiple subsystems to a single block representing the transfer function from input to output, convert block diagrams to signalflow diagram, transfer function of mutiple subsystems using Mason's rule.
 In the fourth section students get familiar with the stability of the system by analyzing the RouthHurwitz Criterion, including all its cases. steady state error for a unity feed back sytem, specify a system's steady state error performance, sytems beahvior to the differnt test inputs also considered.
 in the last root locus techniques, sketching a root locus, poperties of a root locus, coordinates of points on the root locus and their associated gains. also the design of lead lag compensators and PID controller is dicussed.
