New approaches to control education Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • In this paper, we describe recent developments in theory and computational aids that signal a new approach to a design oriented control education curriculum at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The main features of this approach are: a) Analytical results developed for low order controllers such as Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) and lead/lag controllers which account for 99% of controllers in applications, b) Development of tools to obtain complete sets of controllers achieving stability, performance and their efficient graphical representations and c) An approach to design based on raw measured data rather than identified models. The paper is illustrated with examples of design using both recently developed commercially available software and custom software developed by us.
