Feedback Control Dynamic Systems - ELEC624

This unit extends the foundations of time and frequency domain descriptions of linear systems and their dynamics to include feedback control. The unit introduces the concept of state-space and its application in modelling and design of feedback control systems, and the foundations of computer-based and optimal control systems are also introduced. Applications of feedback are explored, including regulation of physical and chemical processes, control of process dynamics, and stability and robustness in the presence of external disturbances.
The latter concepts and applications are illustrated using examples from diverse areas, including biomedical, electronic, electrical, mechatronic, and wireless engineering.
Experimental work is used to illustrate the impact of feedback on the dynamics, stability, and compensation of servo-motor systems and electronic circuits. MatLab is used extensively for system modelling and design. The unit provides a strong foundation for advanced topics in most engineering majors.
