This lab includes several experiments that teach the student how to design feedback and forward controllers of dynamic electrical, mechanical, heat, and fluid systems. System identification and hardware implementation of controllers are taught as well and this include Modeling of electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic and mechanical systems, Transfer functions, block diagrams, and signal flow graph. Time domain analysis, test signals, transient response, steady state error and stability. Root locus, bode plots, PID control, phase-lead, phase lag.Software tools used include MATLAB/Simulink and LabView.
