  • ECEN 2310 - Programming with Mathematical Software
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021
    Applies mathematical software to the solution of engineering applications, using numerical and symbolic techniques. Typical applications include the manipulation of acoustic signals and the study of the dynamics of simple continuous and discrete systems.
  • ECEN 4138 - Control Systems Analysis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020
    Analysis and design of continuous time control systems using classical and state space methods. Laplace transforms, transfer functions and block diagrams. Stability, dynamic response, and steady-state analysis. Analysis and design of control systems using root locus and frequency response methods. Computer aided design and analysis. Department enforced prerequisite: background in Laplace transforms, linear algebra,and ordinary differential equations. Same as ECEN 5138.
  • 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. Same as ECEN 5638.
  • ECEN 5138 - Control Systems Analysis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020
    Analysis and design of continuous time control systems using classical and state space methods. Laplace transforms, transfer functions and block diagrams. Stability, dynamic response, and steady-state analysis. Analysis and design of control systems using root locus and frequency response methods. Computer aided design and analysis. Topics covered in this course will be investigated in more depth, require external readings, additional homework will be assigned, and the exams will be more difficult. Recommended prerequisite: ECEN 3300. Same as ECEN 4138.
  • ECEN 5358 - Optimization and Optimal Control
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020 / Fall 2021
    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.
