17. Error Constants Kp, Kv, Ka

18. Stability Analysis

19. Relative stability plots.

and much more

A Control Systems Engineer is responsible for designing, developing, and implementing solutions that control dynamic systems. The aim of a Control Systems Engineer is to bring stability to these constantly changing systems to produce the desired outcome. It is a field of engineering that is wide and varied.

For competitive exams like GATE, ESE , Control Systems is one of the most tested subjects.

So what are you waiting for?

Everything is covered from scratch!

I’ll see you there in my course.
