Amir Nafchi Will Teach Feedback Control Systems this Summer
"Feedback control systems are central to many
advanced technologies such as robotics."
Amir Nafchi will be teaching ECE 446 Feedback Control Systems this summer. ECE students are encouraged to register for his class.
"Feedback control systems are central to many advanced technologies such as robotics," said Nafchi. "This course develops the fundamentals of feedback control using linear transfer function system models."
The topics that will be covered in his class include analysis in time and frequency domains; design in the s-plane (root locus) and in the frequency domain (loop shaping); describing functions for stability of certain non-linear systems; extension to state variable systems and multivariable control with observers; discrete and digital hybrid systems and use of z-plane design.
Nafchi is a PhD student at ECE and Dr. Ramiro Jordan serves as his adviser. He has been a research assistant at ECE since August 2012 and has served as an adjunct professor here from September 2014 to May of 2015.
Prior to his arrival at ECE, Nafchi studied at the University of New Haven in West Haven, CT. During his stay there he taught Electrical Engineering courses including Circuit Design, Wireless Communications and Digital Design, Modern Control Theory.
Nafchi worked as a GSM RF engineer at Borje-Noor in Tehran from May 2007 to December 2011 where he commissioned, integrated and constructed 3G/4G cellular networks.
