Control Systems Training
Control Systems Training Course Description
This 3-day short Control Systems Training is an introduction to classical and modern control theory. The course emphasizes essential concepts. These concepts are illustrated by using numerous graphics, block diagrams, and simple examples. The practical usefulness of these concepts is reinforced through practical control system design examples, including spacecraft attitude control design using both classical and modern methods. Concepts introduced will be illustrated with Matlab. However, the emphasis is on the fundamentals of control systems. Selected special topics based on the students’ interest areas will also be presented.
With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
