Linear Systems

Fall 2002

 

This is the foundational graduate course in control theory and signal processing.After taking this course the student should be in a position to study more advanced and practical control topics, such as modern control, optimal control, Kalman filtering, robust control, system identification, and adaptive control.

Below are some sample Matlab programs.

 

          Ex00.m - A simple series RL circuit simulation. This shows how the same results can be obtained numerically (via simulation) and analytically.

          Ex01.m - A general nonlinear system simulation that can be used to explore the effects of linearization.

          Ex01a.m - The same as Ex01.m, except with more matrix usage.

          Ex02.m - A hovering rocket simulation that can be used to explore the effects of linearization.

          Ex03.m - An inverted pendulum simulation that can be used to explore the effects of linearization.

          Ex04.m - A series RLC circuit simulation. This file shows how to generate a step response, an impulse response, and how superposition works for linear systems.

          Chen220.m - Matlab simulation of Problem 2.20 in Chenís book (electrical circuit simulation). This m-file demonstrates various Matlab capabilities, along with the superposition property of linear systems.

 

This course uses MATLAB a lot and Maple less frequently.Below are some links to Linear Systems web sites at other universities.The following sites include a lot of helpful information about linear systems, including tutorials, class notes, homework solutions, and exam solutions.
