Feedback Control Design


Stanford School of Engineering



Design is central to all engineering, but especially to control system design. Learn the process of analyzing and designing feedback control systems starting from a physical model of a system which will focus on everyday applications. Lectures are delivered by faculty who describe their real world experience with control system design and share their analysis from a variety of fields. Students should expect to use MATLAB throughout the course.


EE102B, CME102 (Math 53)  or ME161.

Topics include

  • Overview of feedback control
  • Laplace transforms and dynamic response
  • Root locus design, examples and extensions
  • Bode plotting techniques and examples
  • Nyquist stability criterion, formation and examples
  • Phase and gain margins
