In this course, the students will explore the fundamentals of control theory. After an introductory lecture that shows the importance of control theory in modern life, the students will learn how to derive the mathematical models of simple mechanical, electrical, electromechanical, and fluid-level systems. This knowledge is coupled with the methods of representing the derived models into block diagrams and signal flow graphs to obtain the transfer function in s - domain. After that, we are moving on to learn more about time response analysis of first, second and higher-order systems in which response characteristics in time domain will be derived and explained comprehensively. At this stage, we believe that students should be introduced to the basic concept of system stability and we opt for the simplest one which is Routh criterion. We will finalize this course by introducing the steady-state error of unity and non-unity feedback systems.
This course has 2 practical hours per week, in which Matlab / Simulink is used to carry out the experiments. Also, an experimental setup of speed-control of DC-motor will be presented to boost the practical experience of students.

In this course the principles of designed parameters for the medical instrumentation are discussed. Starting from the definition of the General Block Diagram (GBD) used for any medical system passing through the static and dynamic characteristics of the medical systems up to the other discussion of the sensing elements and pre-amplifying, filtering and so on.
