Available for Study Abroad and Exchange: Yes
Available for Non-Award Study: Yes
Assessment: Assignments, tutorials, laboratory project, written exam
Syllabus:

This course covers a variety of advanced topics in automatic control system design with a focus on PID control. Major topics include: system identification for low-order systems, frequency domain analysis of stability and sensitivity, and PID tuning laws and their derivation. Techniques used to analyse and accommodate uncertainty and disturbances in practical systems are taught. Matlab/Simulink is the programming environment used to design and analyse the control systems both theoretically and using hands-on control system apparatus in the lab. Students attend weekly face-to-face laboratory sessions to learn control systems by building them from scratch with a variety of apparatus. Remote students undertake equivalent modules in a virtual Matlab environment.
