Aims and objectives

This unit aims to introduce linear system theory including state space representation, the structural properties of linear systems and the synthesis of linear controllers.

Unit Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Develop mathematical state space representations of continuous and discrete linear system (K1, K2, K3, S1))
2. Evaluate the state transition matrix, for linear and time varying systems (K1, K2, K3, S1)
3. Analyse and evaluate the structural properties of linear systems including controllability, observability and stability (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
4. Design and synthesize linear controllers using state feedback (K1, K2, K3, K4, S1, S2, S3)
5. Design asymptotic observers and compensators (K1, K2, K3, K4, S1, S2, S3)
6. Design optimum observers and controllers (K1, K2, K3, K4, S1, S2, S3)
