Multivariable Control Systems: Course Description

This OpenCourseWare is from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department. It shows graduate students how to use computer-aided design programs like MATLAB to create feedback control systems that use multiple variables. The OpenCourseWare is taught by MIT Professor Alexandre Megretski. Students in this free course will learn about multivariable control systems through a series of lectures, including topics like Q-parameterization, model-based compensators, trade-offs between robustness and performance, simplifying models and compensators, dynamic augmentation and nonlinear effects. This is not a course for beginners; students considering it should already have taken a graduate-level control course, and they should be familiar with SISO systems (single input, single output).

This graduate OpenCourseWare includes MATLAB assignments and lecture notes. If you are interested in taking this free course, visit the multivariable feedback control programming course page.
