Advanced Control System Design
ELEC4410 examines advanced analysis and design issues in linear feedback control systems. The course provides an in-depth introduction to the fundamental concepts of linear system theory using both transfer function and state equation system descriptions. Emphasis is placed on the design of feedback controllers and state estimators for pole-placement, robust regulation, tracking and disturbance rejection, in the context of real world industrial process applications.
- Semester 2 - 2015
1. Design control systems using modern control techniques (e.g. observers, state variable feedback, Internal Model Control etc.)
2. Demonstrate an understanding of various factors which limit the achievable control system performance (e.g. Time delays, Non minimum phase zeros, etc.)
3. Implement control systems in a laboratory environment
4. Understand various control implementation issues (e.g. Sampled data systems, Actuator saturation, Anti-windup schemes etc.)
5. Solve problems in more advanced topics (e.g. Multivariable systems, Kalman Filters)
6. Demonstrate knowledge in empirical modelling and system identification
