EE-371 Control Systems I Laboratory Manual
Real-Time Control Laboratory
DR. H. Saadat

The student is introduced to the fundamentals of automatic control systems including the analysis and design of control systems for various engineering applications. Topics include modeling of physical systems using both transfer function and state space models. System responses, performance and design criteria. Control system characteristics, stability, sensitivity, steady state errors and transient response. Stability analyses using Routh-Hurwitz, Root-locus, Nyquist, and Bode methods. Lead and lag compensators and PID controllers design using root-locus method. Frequency-response analysis. MATLAB and SIMULINK are used to aid in the analysis and design of control systems.

The laboratory work is designed to introduce the student to modern techniques needed for the design and implementation of automatic control systems. The student is first introduced to the basics of the MATLAB and SIMULINK used for the analysis and simulation of the dynamic system, controller design and simulation of the compensated system. Next, the student implements the developed control system in one of the laboratory test bench, and control the system in real-time in accordance to the design specifications.
