|Autumn||Assessed by end of Autumn Semester|
Prerequisites: An understanding of differential equations; matrices, determinants and matrix algebra; Laplace transformations. H63CSD must be taken in conjunction with this module if it has not already been taken. This does not apply to postgraduate students who have taken an equivalent module to H63CSD.
|H63CSD||Control Systems Design|
Summary of Content: This module introduces the state-space representation of physical systems and the control design of multi-input multi-output systems using multi-variable control techniques for both continuous and discrete implementation. The module then covers both full and reduced observer design for those cases when state variables are not measurable. The module finishes with an overview of optimal control design. A more detailed design experience using advanced CAD will be acquired by means of a specialized coursework.

Education Aims: Students following this module should develop good understanding of Multivariable state feedback control used in a wide range of engineering applications from mechanical, to electronic, electrical and chemical. They will gain a basic knowledge of state space modelling of linear and non linear systems, including simplification of practical aspects. Students will learn about advanced control design techniques for multivariable state feedback both in continuous and discrete domain together with observer theory. They will gain a good understanding of the role of these control techniques for the development and implementation of a variety of engineering systems.
