Monday: Design Example (Notes, MP3)

This lecture will talk about the process of robust design, using the Caltech ducted fan as a case study.

Wednesday: Robust Performance (Slides, MP3)

In this lecture we will discuss how to model uncertainty in control systems. We will focus on the inclusion of unmodeled dynamics in our system descriptions, allow us to reason about the performance of a system even when the dynamics are not exactly known.

Friday: Final exam review review (Slides, MP3)


Monday Wednesday (CDS 110) Friday



The exam will consist of 3-5 problems, covering all of the the material in the course. The exam will be open book. You may use the course notes, any of the optional texts (Friedland, Franklin-Powell and Emami-Naeni, Leonard and Levin, Strogatz, or Kuo), course handouts, lecture notes, course problem sets and solutions, and your own handwritten notes. No other books are allowed.

You may use a computer or calculator for carrying out numerical computations. MATLAB may be used but is not required. You are not allowed to use the Internet during the exam except for accessing local computing resources, such as MATLAB/SIMULINK or accessing copies of presentations, notes, FAQs, or other material posted on the course web site. You are not allowed to access or print out contents of other sites for use while taking the exam (although you can take handwritten notes on the sites and use your own notes in the exam).

The exam will be due by 5 p.m. on riday, 8 December, in the box outside 102 Steele. Please write your solutions in a fresh exam book (blue book). We have to grade a large collections of exams in a short time and it makes things much simpler to manage if everyone uses a bluebook.
