Fundamental principles of control. What can be achieved by control, possibilities and limitations. The course mainly covers linear continuous time systems. Special emphasis is given to computer implementations, real-time aspects, and networked control loops.

Dynamic systems: time-invariant ordinary differential equations, transfer functions, Bode and Nyquist diagrams, Analysis: stability and stability analysis, stability margins. Synthesis of control systems: PID, pole placement using state feedback and output feedback, observers. Computer implementation. Real-time aspects. Real-time systems. Networked control loops. Applications. Communication delays.
