Department: MSc Systems Engineering
Module Description: This module introduces students to process system modelling, control and simulation methods using modern digital computation methods to validate theoretical predictions. Frequency and time domain methods will be employed to analyse typical process system applications. Transfer function descriptions for linear, non- linear, rational and irrational system models will be investigated representing lumped and distributed configurations.
