Systems Modelling for Control Engineering

6 November 2017 - 10 November 2017

The aims of this module are for the students to understand the options available and the issues related to selection of modelling methodologies for control systems design. On completion of the module students will be able to explain the benefits and limitations of classical, linear, `first principle' methods of modelling systems, perform control design based on optimal LQG methods and the robust H-Infinity paradigm and explain and apply the concept of PIP (Proportional-Integral-Plus) control design. They will also be able to explain and apply system identification methods for system characterisation.
