Integrated Control Systems: State Space Applications

This course gives a step-by-step approach to working with control systems and state space applications using Mathematica. Each example begins with a problem definition and works toward a solution and a simulation using controller design methods, including pole placement and optimal control.

Level: Intermediate

Some experience with control systems is recommended for the course.
