Control system modelling


I was wondering if anyone knew of any good tutorials on modelling control systems - I have to convert a RCL circuit to a control system - i understand things like how to express components mathmatically but am confused as to steps I should take to make sure I do a thorough model?

Any info much appreciated

Try this one:

If you need to taylor any of the examples to your specific problem, remember that there are analogies between inertial systems and electrical systems.

Try finding out the transfer function of ur RLC ckt by calculating the V0(s)/Vi(s). Then use this as ur transfer function, G(s), then, using the inputs design ut control system with or without a feedback...

Hope u got it...
