These instructional objectives provide you with a guide for learning the course material. During the examination you should be able to:

- Explain the difference between first- and second-order transient system responses with and without feedback
- Explain the effect controller gain has on system output for first- and second-order systems
- Calculate the output and/or transfer function of a system with feedback and a disturbance
- Calculate $\tau$ for first-order systems with feedback
- Calculate the steady state value for first- and second-order systems with feedback and a disturbance, given a step input
- Calculate $\zeta$ and $\omega_n$ for 2nd order systems with feedback and disturbances if the controller is P, PD, or PID
- Calculate the steady-state output of a system given a step input and a P, PD, or PID controller
- Describe the effect a P, PD, or PID controller has on the system response
- Define and calculate open-loop gain, loop gain, open-loop transfer function, and closed-loop transfer function
- Calculate steady-state error for a system with or without a disturbance for any input
- Generate a magnitude and phase plot given a transfer function
- Calculate magnitude and phase of a transfer function given a frequency
- Convert magnitude from normalized to dB and vice versa
- Read values from a magnitude and phase plot
- Describe how feedback affects the magnitude and phase plots of a system
- Sketch the expected output from a system given magnitude and phase plots, and vice versa
- Calculate system output given a magnitude and phase plot, and vice versa
- Define stability in terms of BIBO
- Describe how gain, and the controller, can make a system unstable
- Determine system response given gain, or vice versa
