ELEN3016 Control I

School running course: 
Electrical & Information Engineering
Course Brief and Outline: 
Year of Study: 
  • Introduction to control systems: System and Control concepts. Physical system representations using block diagrams and transfer functions
  • System modelling and analysis:Physical system modelling, and linearisation. State-space modelling. Low order transfer function prototypes.
  • Control system design principles:Closed loop specifications for one and two degree-of-freedom feedback systems. Use of frequency domain control design tools such as Nichols Charts, Bode, Nyquist plots. Quantitative Feedback Theory (QFT) to design robust Single-input, Single –Output (SISO) controllers that meet performance objectives in the presence of disturbances, plant uncertainty and sensor noise. Synthesis of sensitivity and complementary sensitivity function specifications.
  • Stability analysis: such as root locus, Routh Hurwitz and Nyquist
  • Prerequisites: MATH2014, ELEN2005
  • Corequisites: ELEN3012, ELEN3013
