Fundamentals of Control Engineering
Share this course
spContent=With the help of the course, students could master transfer function, time-frequency domain analysis methods, stability and error analysis and other classical control theory knowledge. Combined with the basic training of the application of classical control theory, students are equipped with the ability of applying the basic concepts and principles to analyze the dynamic problems of control systems and to solve the control problems of mechanical systems.

About this course

There are 2 keywords about the name of the course, one is ‘Control Engineering’, the other is ‘Fundamentals’. The combination of two keywords tells us that it is the course about the classic control theory. The main features of the course are focusing on the theories and methods, as well as depending on engineering.

The course consists of 30 units, covering Laplace Transform, differential equation, transfer function, Mason’s gain formula, time response, frequency response, Routh Stability Criterion, steady state error, and so on.

Here are 3 purposes for building the course.No.1 You can learn the professional course ‘Fundamentals of Control Engineering’ by following my Video.No.2 If you do not learn clear or understand some knowledge points in real classes, you can study again or just study the specific knowledge point.No.3 it can assist you in reviewing with the help of my video coursewares before your final exam.


(1) Knowledge acquisition Objective: to correctly understand and master the basic concepts and theories related to modeling in the classical control field.

(2) Problem analysis Objective: to master the method of dynamic and systematic problem analysis in the time-frequency domain, and to be able to analyze the dynamic performance of mechanical systems with relevant methods.

(3) Problem solving Objective: To apply the basic theories and methods of classical control theory to solve problems such as correction and error reduction of mechanical engineering systems.

(4) Ideological and political objectives of the course: By combining engineering application cases of control theory, students can understand the relationship between individuals and society, and clarify the responsibilities and missions of individuals as builders and successors of the socialist cause.
