ACS342 Feedback Systems Design
Module Description (subject to change)
The module provides an introduction to the modelling, analysis and design of feedback control systems using classical control theory. The focus is linear time-invariant (LTI) systems in the continuous-time domain, although a brief introduction is also provided to digital controllers.
Credits: 10 (Spring semester)
Pre-requisites: EEE224 or equivalent
If you have any questions about the module please talk to me during the lectures or the labs in the first instance. It is likely that other students will learn from any questions you ask as well, so don’t be afraid to ask questions.
Outside of lectures please contact me via email, or drop in to see me.
By the end of the module students will be able to:
