41277 Control Design

Requisite(s): 48540 Signals and Systems



This subject provides a comprehensive introduction to principles and techniques used in the analysis and design of control systems. Students explore topics such as mathematical modelling of dynamic systems, transfer function and state-space representations, stability analysis, frequency response methods, and feedback control. They gain practical experience through demonstrations and simulations, while preparing for more advanced project work in control systems. By the end of the subject, students are able to analyse the behaviour of dynamic systems, design robust control strategies, and optimise system performance. Students can apply this knowledge to engineering challenges in areas such as Industry 4.0, robotics, automation and all kinds of electromechanical systems.
