Aims and objectives

This unit of study aims to have you continue study of control systems by introducing advanced controllers, analysis and design in state space and discrete time control.

Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Design controllers to satisfy different specifications (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2, S3) 
2. Formulate state space equations and using them to analyse and design controllers (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2, S3) 
3. Describe the concept of discrete time control systems, and perform analysis, controller design and evaluation in the discrete time domain (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2, S3) 
4. Use MATLAB to design control system via root locus, frequency response and state space methods (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2, S3) 
5. Demonstrate effective written communication and team membership through group laboratory activities (A2, A7)
