Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

To successfully complete this course, you need to complete EEET2109 Control Systems or an equivalent course. You should be familiar with mathematical models of dynamics system, feedback control systems and mathematic transformation such as Laplace transform.

A basic knowledge of MATLAB programming is an advantage.


Course Description

This course introduces you to the theories and tools in advanced control systems. You will learn about the concept of controllers such as PID and pole-assignment controllers which are widely used in the process and manufacturing industries. The state-space design methods including state feedback and state observer are also introduced in the later part of this course. 

Topics that are covered in this course include:  

Introduction to mathematical modelling and control systems; Understanding PID controller design and implementation issues; Understanding pole-assignment controller design methods; Understanding frequency response analysis, step response testing. 

Please note that if you take this course for a bachelor honours program, your overall mark for the course will be one of the course marks used to calculate the weighted average mark (WAM) that will determine your award level. This applies to students who commence enrolment in a bachelor honours program from 1 January 2016 onwards. See the WAM information webpage for more information (www1.rmit.edu.au/browse;ID=eyj5c0mo77631).

 


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the following Program Learning Outcomes:

1.3 In-depth understanding of specialist bodies of knowledge within the engineering discipline.

2.1 Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering problem solving.

2.2 Fluent application of engineering techniques, tools and resources.


On successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • develop mathematical models and understand the mathematical relationships between the sensitivity functions and how they govern the fundamentals in control systems.
  • design and fine tune PID controllers and understand the roles of P, I and D in feedback control;
  • implement PID controllers
  • design pole-assignment controller and the specific design procedures
