Course Description

In this course, we will learn the basics of feedback control theory which has wide range of applications such as drones, automatic driving, systems biology. We will give lectures on analysis of feedback systems, stability criterion, servo mechanism design, and so on, based on Laplace transform.


The final grade in this course is based on your scores in reports and the final examination.

Course Goals

The goal of this course is to understand the basics on analysis of feedback systems and to acquire frequency-domain methods for control systems design.
