EEE8153 : Linear Controller Design & State Space with Matlab Applications

Semesters
Semester 1 Credit Value: 20
ECTS Credits: 10.0

Aims

To develop the student's understanding of system analysis and controller design using state space techniques.

To introduce linear control system design using computer aided design techniques.

Outline Of Syllabus

Basic concepts of state space analysis, solution of state space systems including the state transition matrix, state space geometry, state feedback (pole placement and LQR), estimators, tracking.

Teaching Methods

Please note that module leaders are reviewing the module teaching and assessment methods for Semester 2 modules, in light of the Covid-19 restrictions. There may also be a few further changes to Semester 1 modules. Final information will be available by the end of August 2020 in for Semester 1 modules and the end of October 2020 for Semester 2 modules.
