EE442 COURSE OUTLINE
· Semester: Spring 1996 · Course: EE442 · Text: Feedback Control of Dynamic Systems; Franklin, Powell, EmamiNaeini  3d edition · Instructor: Ric Kolk; 674 3070 (days) 6460404 (eves) · Class Times: M,W 7:00  8:15, room UT303 · Evaluation: 2 Exams (40%), Final (30%), Homework (30%) · Attendance: Regular attendance is expected, if you expect to be absent, notify me in advance. 
· Course Overview: An introductory course covering methods of system modeling, analysis, and basic compensation techniques. Major topics to be covered will include: Block diagram modeling, Linearization, System response characteristics, Root Locus, and Frequency response. Homework will require computer programming using the VisSim code available in UT103. VisSim can also be purchased directly from Visual Solutions at (508) 392 0100. You will need th personal version plus analyze. The cost is $60.00 if you identify yourself as a University of Hartford Student.
