About This Course

Linear Control Systems is a fundamental course in Electrical Engineering that deals with System Modelling and Control. The fundamental concepts of time domain and frequency domain analysis and stability of systems is detailed through this course.

The basic objective of the course is to provide a strong foundation of the analytical and design techniques in classical control theory and modelling of dynamic systems


Open loop and closed loop control systems - Transfer function - Control system components - Steady state error - static error coefficient - dynamic error coefficient -Stability Analysis - Root locus - Frequency domain analysis - Bode plot - polar plot - Nyquist stability criterion - Non-minimum phase system - transportation lag.
