Analysis of frequency responses, design assisted by frequency responses, introduction to state-space modelling and design of controller, similarity transformations and control on state-space form, controller and observer on the state-space form, design of LQR controllers, physical experiment for upswing and balancing of inverted pendulum (Matlab/xPC), introduction to Kalman filter observer and design of LQR/LQG controllers, introduction to multi variable control, limitation in output/performance in SISO systems, digital control technique and stability analysis.
Examples and exercises in the subject will be related to MAS401 and MAS402 by using examples of electric motor drives and servo techniques based on valve controlled hydraulic systems.
On successful completion of the course, the student should be able to
analyse and design controls and estimates of state/conditions for linear multivariable systems
use techniques for discrete control.
Teaching methods and workload
Lectures, exercises and practical project work carried out individually or in groups. Use of software.
The course evaluation is completed as a midterm evaluation in accordance with the provisions listed in the Quality Assurance System Chapter 2.1.1. A final evaluation may be completed as required.
Assessment methods and criteria
4-hour individual written examination (60 % contribution to final assessment), and practical project work with compulsory presentation (40 % contribution to final assessment). Graded assessment.
