This course shall introduce the fundamentals of modeling and control of linear time invariant systems; primarily from the classical viewpoint of Laplace transforms and a brief emphasis on the state space formulation as well. The course will be useful for students from major streams of engineering to build foundations of time/frequency analysis of systems as well as the feedback control of such systems.
Ramkrishna Pasumarthy is currently an Assistant Professor at Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Madras. I obtained my PhD in systems and control from University of Twente, The Netherlands and held post doc positions at University of Melbourne and UCLA.My interests lie in the area of modeling and control of complex physical systems. I also have interests in the area of identification and control of (cloud) computing systems and data analytics for power, traffic and cloud networks. I am also a member of the Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Data Sciences at IIT Madras.
