*Objectives of subject*

The main objective is to introduce the student to the fundamentals of systems theory with emphasis on control systems design and analysis. Technical aspects and mathematical approaches on the implementation issues of classical control theory in the time and frequency domain are studied to provide the student with a modern view of systems theory.

Understanding the benefits and the drawbacks of dynamic systems modeling, knowledge of the properties of control structures, understanding of methods for design and tuning of the P, PI, PD, PID controllers, time and frequency analysis of dynamic systems, aspects of engineering practice in the start-up of a closed loop control structure.
