Description

Control Systems is all about plant and processes (systems) how they behave when subjected to certain inputs (system response) and how to get them to do what we want (system control). Control Systems 302 introduces the student to analog and digital strategies for controlling these systems

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Carry out practicals using analog control techniques on mechanical and fluid equipment.

2.

Derive the difference equations for numerical integrators and differentiators.

3.

Test for discrete system stability by location of the z-plane poles.

4.

Design digital controllers using cancellation pole placement, one-step-ahead and Kalman and Diophantine pole placement strategies.

5.

Implement simple machine learning strategies in linear regression, logistic regression and neural networks using Matlab/Octave software.

6.

Use software (e.g. LabView, Simulink) to tune PID controllers.
