Control Systems Analysis and Design 401

Control Systems Engineering is all about plant and processes (systems) how they behave when subjected to certain inputs (system response) and how to get them to do what we want (system control). Control Systems Analysis and Design 402 introduces the student to the state-space method of modelling and controlling multiple input and output systems

NFQ level 7 in Engineering or related discipline. Applicants with other qualifications and/or with relevant experience may also be considered through ATU Sligo’s Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process.

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.Derive in matrix form, the set of state equations for a multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) system (simple mechanical (linear and torsional), electrical and electro-mechanical systems)
2.Use matrix methods to determine whether a system is controllable and/or observable.
3.Design State Variable Feedback regulators for MIMO systems
4.Design tracking system controllers in state-space
5.Design full order state observers for state-space systems
6.Use Computer Aided Analysis and Design software in the simulation, analysis and design of state-space models and controllers
7.Write a professional report on the process of modelling, analysis and control system design applied to practical project work.
