'Control System Design' is a course offered in the M. Tech. in Power & Energy Engineering program at School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri campus.

Control system design by root locus method: lag, lead, lag-lead compensators, control system design by frequency response: lag, lead, lag-lead compensators. PID controller design: Tuning algorithms for PID controllers, optimal PID tuning, anti-reset wind up, derivative kick, modifications to conventional PID controller. Design of control system in state space: Pole placement controller, selection of pole locations for good design, control law design for full state feedback, design of servo systems. Observer design: Reduced order observer, design of regulator systems with observers. Computer aided designs. Simulations and case studies of classical controller design.
