Department: BSc Electro-Mechanical Engineering
Module Description: The aims of the course are to introduce the use of feedback control systems. Introduce analysis techniques for linear systems which are used in control of engineering systems. Develop and interpret block diagrams and transfer functions for simple systems. Relate the time response of a system to its transfer function and/or its poles. Understand the term 'stability', its definition, and its relation to the poles of a system. Understand the term 'frequency response' (or 'harmonic response'), and its relation to the transfer function of a system. Introduce the specification, analysis and design of feedback control systems by using graphical methods and techniques.
