ME 221B Non Linear Control Systems

Prerequisite: Linear algebra, differential equations. The aim of this course is to introduce the student to the area of nonlinear control systems with a focus on systems’ analysis and control design. The course will include the introduction of nonlinear phenomena including multiple equilibria, limit cycles and bifurcations, Lyapunov and input output stability, examples of control design such as feedback linearization, backstepping control and sliding mode control. Many examples will be provided and designed controllers will be illustrated by simulation using Matlab and through experimental implementation in the control lab.
