Outline Of Syllabus

The lecture material will cover:

Introduction to control engineering, open and closed loop systems, mathematical modelling of mechanical, hydraulic and electrical system components, linearisation, solution of 1st and 2nd order differential equations, Laplace transforms and their application, initial and final value theorem, state- space representation, transfer functions, block diagrams, poles and zero, time response, Routh- Hurwitz stability theorem, frequency response methods, relative stability, design of feedback control systems, bode diagrams, nyquist diagrams, gain and phase margins, closed loop analysis, root locus diagram and controller design. Marine system identification. Modelling, control and simulation of hydraulic (actuators, motors and pumps) and electric systems (passive and active networks, DC/AC motors and actuators), on-board ships for applications of governing speed of an engine, power transmission, ship dynamic stability and manoeuvring, system identification, controllability and observability assessment techniques.

The laboratory study will cover:
the modelling of engineering systems in Labview and Matlab/Simulink to study control system design to improve dynamic performance.
