Aims and objectives
This unit of study aims to enable you to model the control system mathematically, analyse the behaviour of the system, design a controller for the system and evaluate the outcome of the controlled system.
Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
1. Generate models of control systems using differential equations (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
2. Analyse the behaviour of a control system when input to the system is applied (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
3. Use different control terms and parameters to describe system behaviour (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
4. Determine system stability (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
5. Use the root locus and frequency response method to analyse control system performance (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
6. Design simple feedback control systems (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2, S3)
7. Demonstrate effective written communication and team membership through group laboratory activities (A2, A7)
