Computer Aided Design Tools
The homework and design project will make use of MATLAB version 7.0 which is available on RCS and computers in the control studio classroom. You are also required to use Simulink for system simulation. You can also buy the Student Version of MATLAB and Simulink from the RPI Bookstore. They include both a manual and a diskette of the “reduced” software.
