    Course Description

    Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
    • Create lumped parameter models (expressed as ODEs) of simple dynamic systems in the electrical and mechanical energy domains
    • Make quantitative estimates of model parameters from experimental measurements
    • Obtain the time-domain response of linear systems to initial conditions and/or common forcing functions (specifically; impulse, step and ramp input) by both analytical and computational methods
    • Obtain the frequency-domain response of linear systems to sinusoidal inputs
    • Compensate the transient response of dynamic systems using feedback techniques
    • Design, implement and test an active control system to achieve a desired performance measure

    Mastery of these topics will be assessed via homework, quizzes/exams, and lab assignments.
