  • ECEN 4638 - Control Systems Laboratory
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Provides experience in control system design and analysis, using both real hardware and computer simulation. Covers the entire control system design cycle: modeling the system, synthesizing a controller, conducting simulations, analyzing the design to suggest modifications and improvements, and implementing the design for actual testing.
  • ECEN 5358 - Optimization and Optimal Control
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Introduces the theory and practice of optimization and optimal control. Topics include basic theory, nonlinear system trajectories and regulation, function space operators and derivatives, optimality conditions, barrier functionals and Newton's method in function space. Recommended prerequisite: ECEN 5448.
  • ECEN 5738 - Theory of Nonlinear Systems
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Nonlinear systems and control. Introduction to nonlinear phenomena: multiple equilibria, limit cycles, bifurcations, complex dynamical behavior. Planar dynamical systems, analysis using phase plane techniques. Input-output analysis and stability. Passivity. Lyapunov stability theory. Feedback linearization. Exploration of examples and applications. Formerly ECEN 7438.
  • ECEN 6950 - Master's Thesis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Spring 2020
