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
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
#Unit Learning Outcome Description
ULO1Generate models of control systems using differential equations (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
ULO2Analyse the behaviour of a control system when input to the system is applied (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
ULO3Use different control terms and parameters to describe system behaviour (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
ULO4Determine system stability (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
ULO5Use the root locus and frequency response method to analyse control system performance (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
ULO6Design simple feedback control systems (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2, S3)
ULO7Demonstrate effective written communication and team membership through group laboratory activities (A2, A7)
