This subject provides an introduction to modern control theory with a particular focus on state-space methods and optimal control. The role of feedback in control will be reinforced within this context, alongside the role of optimization techniques in control system synthesis. This subject is a core requirement in the Master of Engineering (Mechanical and Mechatronics).
State-space models - first-order vector differential/difference equations; Lyapunov stability; linearization; discretization; Kalman decomposition (observable, detectable, reachable and stabilizable subspaces); state-feedback and pole placement; output-feedback and observer design.
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILO)
Having complete this subject it is expected that the student be able to:
1. Apply fundamental state-space-techniques in the analysis and design of linear feedback control systems, as they arise in a variety of contexts;
Hurdle requirement: Students must pass the written exam to pass the subject.
Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) 1 and 2 are assessed in the final written examination, the mid-semester test, and submitted reports for three projects. ILO 3 is assessed as part of submitted project work and in-class discussions.
