Behaviour of internal combustion engines and fluid systems and the application of control to these systems. My research can be divided into three areas: internal combustion engines, engine control, and active control of fluid systems.
Design of linear feedback control systems for command-following error, stability, and dynamic response specifications. PID, Root-locus, frequency response and design techniques. An introduction to structural design limitations. Examples emphasizing Mechanical Engineering systems. Some use of computer aided design with MATLAB/Simulink. Controls Lab - control of mechanical systems. Prerequisites: MEC E 390. Credit can only be granted for one of MEC E 420, ECE 362, CH E 448.Fall Term 2021
