  • Overview

    The unit introduces the student to classical control systems, analysis and synthesis, and implementation in an industrial control context. It introduces the principles of electrical measurements and instrumentation, sensors, PLC, DSC and industrial networks, and foundation of feedback control theory for engineers.
    Learning Outcomes
    On completion of this unit you will be able to:
    1. Develop mathematical models of mechanical, electrical and electromechanical systems.
    2. Calculate and estimate the stability measures, error measures and time response measures from the analysis of mathematical models of some simple engineering systems.
    3. Design and report the development of practical controllers and compensators in feedback control systems to achieve the desired behaviour.
